About Us

Maidstone Youth Music Society (MYMS) is the music centre in the Maidstone area for young string, woodwind, brass and percussion players aged 10 to 18 years.

MYMS has around 150 members, of various ages and standards, playing a wide range of music in eight ensembles, which include a percussion ensemble, a string ensemble, the Maidstone Youth  String orchestra, the Maidstone Youth Orchestra, and four wind bands. The quality of music produced is of a high standard and a number of our young musicians are currently members of various Kent County Youth ensembles.

MYMS is a very friendly society where young people not only enjoy the thrill of playing high quality music but also making friends and socialising .

MYMS is proud of its members who come from over 30 different schools in the Maidstone & Mid Kent area and is always keen to welcome new players.
