The application deadline for  Training Ensembles covering Strings, Wind, Brass and Percussion has been extended from Friday 28th April to Friday 26th May.
The NYOS Training Ensemble programme is now in its third year and  would like to reach out in particular to all brass, percussion and lower string players – also including viola and double bass students. 
The training ensemble courses are for 8 to 14 year old musicians looking to develop further on their chosen instrument in an ensemble setting (ABRSM Grade 3 as a guide only and theye also accept brass students from Grade 2 onwards).
The courses focus on learning repertoire, ensemble playing, listening skills, posture and musicianship, along with advice on audition preparation.
The student places are allocated on a first come first served basis and violin places are now currently full.
