We aim to provide as many performance opportunities as possible for our students. The process of preparing for performance, both musically and mentally, teaches a huge amount, and we all grow as musicians through the experience. Our young string quartet was privileged to be chosen to perform in the National Finals of Music for Youth, in Birmingham. MFY is a fantastic organisation that promotes Youth Music, providing opportunities for young people to perform in prestigious venues, meet other young musicians from all over the country, and to receive feedback from MFY Music Mentors.
Prior to this, were also invited to perform at Glastonbury Abbey, during their summer open evening. This first experience of outdoor playing will set them up for many a wedding performance in later life! What a wonderful opportunity this was for our young string quartet.
