Gloucestershire Academy of Music

Gloucestershire Academy of Music offers professional tuition in a vibrant family atmosphere, creating high-quality musical opportunities for everyone.

​GAM is part of Make Music Gloucestershire, our county’s music hub, providing individual and ensemble lessons in schools and at Barbican House, our base in Gloucester. We run ensembles from beginner to advanced levels as well as pre-school and adult learner groups. Our workforce of around thirty experienced teachers offers tuition on all orchestral instruments, piano, guitar and Javanese gamelan.  We also provide an extensive menu of holiday courses.


Special projects such as The Big String in Gloucester Cathedral bring together participants of all ages from across the county and we enjoy some great musical partnerships with organisations like Cheltenham Festivals, The Carducci Quartet, The Three Choirs Festival, The European Union Chamber Orchestra, The Multi-story Orchestra and Water City Music.
