NCYM staff are appointed by the Guildhall in partnership with the Norfolk Music Service and we run a range of activities for students aged 8 – 18. The emphasis is on encouraging enthusiastic and able musicians to take part in a full morning of musical activities. We are presently running 3 choirs, a range of string/wind ensembles from grade 2 – grade 8+, improvisation sessions, general musicianship classes, classical guitar/percussion groups, theory and a tango band! Individual lessons are also available on some instruments.
STATE OF PLAY
Starting tonight Wednesday 8 January 2014
A gathering of musician educators who are working with young people and interested in sharing and developing their skills.
CME invites musician educators who work with young people to a series of free training/networking/sharing events taking place on Wednesdays 6-9pm at The Birdcage in Norwich from January to March 2014. Participants can attend all 6 events, or drop into the ones most relevant to their interests/needs.
Each of these informal and focused sessions will be a blend of discussion, guest presentations and practical activity on a particular theme, followed by action planning. Music will be at the heart of activity and there will usually be some form of live performance – an opportunity for a young band showcase, an experiment or other activity related to the main theme. The last hour of the event will be an opportunity to network and socialise.
Sessions will be hosted by CME and chaired by MARK HOWE, Freelance Community Music Practitioner, who has worked with CME for many years, specialising in band skills, engagement, tutor training and junk instrumentation. It is hoped that this series of sessions will inform the wider dialogue about community and voluntary sector arts based practice (this is what goes on here and why)!
