Emma in year 9 has recently been on an NYO Inspire course:
In February, I was invited to go to Coventry on a course called NYO Inspire. NYO Inspire is a great opportunity for young musicians from grades 6-8, and allows teenagers from underrepresented backgrounds to make music with many other talented musicians across the country. The course included many creative opportunities like making your own music making your own music with different types of instruments, and of course the one main aspect of the course: making music with other talented musicians. I was also introduced to many NYO musicians, who were so inspiring and gave all of the Inspire musicians’ fantastic guidance throughout. NYO Inspire was such a fantastic experience to be part of and it is such an amazing community of young musicians from around the country.Emma, French Horn, year 9
