About Us

Gloucestershire Academy of Music (GAM) is a charitable organisation which contracts over 50 music leaders per year to work with upwards of 2,000 children, young people and adults. We are a partner in Make Music Gloucestershire, our local music education hub and have a base close to the docks in central Gloucester.

This is an exciting time to join us as negotiations are underway to buy and/or develop our Gloucester base as a vibrant music and arts hub.

We play a leading role, with partners, in ensuring that music remains embedded in the fabric of families and society. We provide access to instrumental tuition, as well as development and progression opportunities for children, young people and adults through musicianship groups, infant and junior string, wind and brass groups and music theory tuition, as well as a pre-school Scutterbugs group.

We are growing a programme of wider community engagement (e.g. Gloucester Dementia Choir) and stage a number of uplifting annual events such as The Big String. GAM works with partners in Make Music Gloucestershire (music education hub) and others, such as The Flowers Band and Three Choirs Festival, to extend our reach and sector impact.

Gloucestershire Academy of Music is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff, and volunteers, to share the same commitment. Most of our positions are subject to an enhanced DBS check.  Candidates should also be aware that online searches will be carried out as part of due diligence during the safer recruitment process.
