Leeds Junior Conservatoire (LJC) is a space for musicians aged 8-18 from Yorkshire and the North. Through sessions every Saturday in term time, LJC provides a nurturing environment for young people to develop their creativity, connected by their passion for music.  

LJC is situated in Leeds Conservatoire, which is in the heart of Leeds’ Cultural Quarter. It’s easily accessible as it’s opposite the bus station, a stone's throw from NCP car park, and a 14-minute walk from the train station. 

We take a holistic approach to music education; our tuition isn’t limited to one style. Your child can play in a band, explore pop, try songwriting, give music production a go, develop their classical skills or hone music theory, supporting them to unlock their individuality and discover their sound. LJC is like a mini music industry under one roof to allow your child to explore what makes them shine.  

The courses are led by skilled educators with a breadth of music industry experience. We don’t want cost to be a barrier and proudly have numerous bursaries available, including fully funded options. 

Your child will meet other like-minded musicians to discover where their artistic potential could lead. LJC aims to build skills and confidence, kickstart musical journeys, and provide a social environment for young creatives. Most of all, LJC aims to be fun. If your child has a passion for music, this is the place for them.
