NCYM is the flagship Music School of Educator Solutions Music Service and Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London.

Workshops

Workshops are very much part of regular life at NCYM. Along with the agreed timetable of workshops provided by students and staff from the Guildhall, we sometimes welcome other groups if it benefits students.

Workshops run as part of Saturday morning sessions. Performance is always central to the work we do.

COMPOSITION

Opportunities for composition can be difficult to find for young musicians, so we have highlighted this as an area for development at NCYM.

David Stowell offers both individual and group sessions, and composition students have the luxury of over 100 instrumentalists and singers to work with, giving them the opportunity to hear their works both in progress and final performance!

Guildhall also supports young composers through the Guildhall Young Artists scholarship and strong links with the composition department.
