THE HOME OF HOLIDAY MUSIC COURSES FOR MORE THAN FORTY YEARS! Dulwich Youth Orchestra offers opportunities for orchestral 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. Our students come from N & S of the river, from Kent and Sussex and beyond. 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:

Easter 2019: 9th to 13th April at Alleyn's School

We are most fortunate to benefit from more than twenty highly professional and experienced tutors and to use the extensive facilities at our host school. Please apply as early as possible as courses fill up very quickly and we do not like to turn down children.

Summer 2019: 24th to 28th July (Concert in the evening) - at Alleyn's School
