About Us

About Young Music Makers

Our aim is quite simple – to give young people who want to play an instrument or write their own music (or both!) the opportunity to work with professional musicians; people who can share their experience and expertise with youngsters and help them develop their skills, build their confidence and increase their enjoyment in making music. We work across the three counties of Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire where we run two key areas of activity:

Young Musician of Dyfed

A competition for instrumentalists under the age of 19yrs that offers all competitors an individual masterclass with some of the country’s leading players.

Dyfed Young Composers

A project open to under 23yrs that encourages participants to explore the art and craft of composition.
