Berkshire Maestros Job Opportunities Berkshire Music Hub


The Academy@Maestros provides gifted, talented and promising young musicians in Berkshire with personalised extension and enrichment activities designed to inspire and motivate students to realise their full creative potential.

We aim to identify promising young musicians at the earliest possible opportunity and use the Register of Exceptional Musical Ability to create personalised learning pathways and monitor the progress of talented young musicians from beginner to advanced level.

The Academy@Maestros activities operate in three tiers:

Debut (beginner to grade 3)
Intermediate (grade 3-6)
Advanced (grade 6+)

Through a variety of courses, workshops, masterclasses and special events the Academy@Maestros creates opportunities for the most able young musicians to play and learn alongside specialist instrumental staff, visiting professional players, composers and animateurs and join in with side by side events with our County Youth Ensembles.

The Academy@Maestros can also provide some support financially with the cost of additional activities, lesson extensions with specialist teachers and directing parents and teachers towards help for purchasing high quality instruments which will allow students to realise their potential.
