Making music since 1981

Gloucestershire Academy of Music (GAM) is a registered charity which offers an exceptional level of professional music tuition in an informal and friendly atmosphere.

For over 40 years we have been creating musical opportunities for all ages and abilities, from individual music lessons and group sessions to performances, courses, workshops and masterclasses.

Reaching over 2,000 participants each year, we encourage members of the community, from the very old to the very young, to love music and through it, to develop and thrive. GAM is a key strategic partner in Make Music Gloucestershire, the county's music hub.
