Please check here again & follow us on Twitter for news

We hope you are all keeping safe and enjoying music-making at home




Dulwich Youth Orchestra offers opportunities for musicians, aged 7 - 18, grade 2 - 8+.

On each course, our staff divide the students into various ensembles:

  • String Ensemble
  • Wind Band
  • Symphony Orchestra
  • Senior String Orchestra
  • The Great Orchestra which involves all players 

If you live in or around South London, then you've come to the right place for holiday music courses. DYO, established for 40 years, meets for five mornings (9.20 - 1.00) each school holiday and presents a concert on the last day. A limited number of bursaries are available - please contact Ronke, our administrator. There are no auditions - see our recommended Playing Standards

Our next course:
