Norfolk Centre of Young Musicians is a division of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London

Folk and World Music Classes

From the Summer term NCYM will be running folk music classes with Rachel Hall.

The sessions will start at 11.45 on Saturday 21 April and will be open initially to Guitar, Woodwind, Strings, Piano and Percussion with the emphasis on learning and playing by ear.

We would like to hear a sample of your folk inspired playing and you can submit these by sending us a recording. (MP3 is ideal, though recording quality doesn’t matter!)

What do you think folk music is?

Make a short recording of yourself playing a folk style tune on the instrument you’d like to play in the ensemble. This can be a tune you know, have learnt or have made up!

Recordings should be approximately 20 seconds in length.Please send your recordings to
