Our lockdown offering is finally here - lots of online sectionals, a play-through in a field and now this! Enjoy our small offering to celebrate Beethoven's 250th birthday below.



We are open and offering a blend of face-to-face and online sessions. 

We have worked hard to make our centre Covid-Safe, with screening procedures, hand-sanitising stations, and restricted numbers to ensure that social-distancing is possible.

GAM is very sad to announce the death of

Professor of Music Alan Lumsden,

the husband of our founder Caroline.

He played an inspirational role in helping Caroline to create an outstanding musical academy, which began life 40 years ago and many of whose students have gone on to forge their own musical careers.
