Berkshire Maestros is the trading name of The Berkshire Young Musicians Trust, a musical education charity operating in Berkshire, United Kingdom.[1]


The charity's aim is to bring music to a wider audience, and encourage children to play a musical instrument, sing, or play music in a group with others.[2] The charity teaches over 6,000 children in schools, bands, orchestras and choirs, and has centres in Bracknell, Newbury, Windsor, Reading and Wokingham.[3] Tuition covers a wide range of instruments, including vocals, guitar, keyboard, percussion, brass, strings and woodwind in a range of styles, and composition.[4]


In 2007, the charity's choir appeared at The Proms,[5] and alongside Southbank Sinfonia at the Windsor Festival.[6] In 2014, the organisation was awarded a grant from the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation.[7] On 1 May 2016, around 1,500 of the Berkshire Maestros students performed a concert at the Royal Albert Hall. Primary school choirs from West Berkshire, Windsor and Maidenhead performed songs from musicals such as Mamma Mia!, Oliver! and The Jungle Book.[8]
