About Us

Young Music Makers is a Saturday music centre for the whole family. Established in 1967, we have been at the heart of music education in North London for 50 years, offering music lessons and groups for students from aged four… to 94!

Based in Kentish Town, we offer a wonderful Early Years programme, where children aged four and up can be creative with music, whilst developing core musicianship skills.

We are very lucky to have some of the best professional musicians in London as part of the YMM family, providing instrumental tuition on piano, violin, viola, cello, recorder, flute, clarinet, saxophone, drum kit, percussion, ukulele, classical guitar, rock-pop guitar, jazz guitar, voice, trumpet, french horn and trombone. 

With over 30 different ensembles, including 8 adult groups, whatever your age or ability: we have a group for you! 

There is a strong focus on performance, with weekly cafe concerts from 10.45-11.00, a concert at the end of each term showcasing all ensembles and many specialist chamber concerts dotted throughout the year.

YMM loves getting involved with local events. For example, the summer of 2016 saw our Big Bands and Electric Guitar Groups host ‘Picnic in the Park’ at the Parliament Hill Bandstand, while our choirs, rhythm groups and String Ensemble entertained the crowds at Parliament Hill Farmers’ Market. YMM brass and wind students even led a carnival parade through the streets of Kentish Town and Tufnell Park.
