Welcome to Gloucestershire Academy of Music

Gloucestershire Academy of Music (GAM to its friends!) offers an exceptional level of professional music tuition in an informal and friendly atmosphere.   We are very successful in creating musical opportunities for all ages and abilities, from individual music lessons and group sessions to performance opportunities, workshops and master classes.   From encouraging the very young to love music and develop their potential to creating an atmosphere where adults feel they can continue, rediscover or even find a new love of playing we have found that we can usually offer something for everyone.   Please look at the information about our available Term-time ( Junior and Senior) and Holiday music programmes on this website.
