Top qual­ity train­ing for young tal­ent

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Music Matters -

The city’s young mu­si­cians will soon have ac­cess to high qual­ity mu­sic ed­u­ca­tion with the open­ing of the Peter­bor­ough Cen­tre for Young Mu­si­cians (PCYM) on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 8.

The Cen­tre is not for the com­plete be­gin­ner. How­ever, it will seek to at­tract tal­ented young mu­si­cians in the ear­li­est stages of learn­ing, who are able to demon­strate a tech­ni­cal and mu­si­cal flu­ency along­side those with more ex­pe­ri­ence and skill.

There’s a great chance to find out more about the cen­tre, see the fa­cil­i­ties and ex­pe­ri­ence what a Satur­day at PCYM will be like at the PCYM Open Day on Satur­day, Septem­ber 24, at Or­mis­ton Bush­field Acad­emy, Or­ton­gate, Peter­bor­ough, from 9am to 12:30pm.

The day will in­clude per- for­mances from an en­sem­ble of the Guild­hall School of Mu­sic & Drama, taster ses­sions, an in­for­ma­tion desk, a chance to ap­ply/au­di­tion and re­fresh­ments.

With sup­port from Peter­bor­ough Mu­sic Hub, the Pe- ter­bor­ough Cen­tre for Young Mu­si­cians is a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Or­mis­ton Bush­field Acad­emy and the Guild­hall School of Mu­sic & Drama. Op­er­at­ing from the high qual­ity fa­cil­i­ties at Or­mis­ton Bush­field Acad­emy, this ex­cit­ing new ven­ture will of­fer mu­sic train­ing at week­ends through­out the aca­demic year.

The Guild­hall School is now the largest provider of high qual­ity train­ing for tal­ented young mu­si­cians in the coun­try with cen­tres in Lon­don, Nor­wich, Bris­tol, Hester­combe and Saf­fron Walden. With the in­tro­duc­tion of PCYM, Peter­bor­ough’s young mu­si­cians will have the op­por­tu­nity to train lo­cally in as­so­ci­a­tion with one of the world’s lead­ing con­ser­va­toires.

Each week, a va­ri­ety of classes will be of­fered across a range of in­stru­ments and dis­ci­plines. The ses­sions will be led by a team of highly skilled pro­fes­sional tu­tors and mu­si­cians.

The Peter­bor­ough Cen­tre for Young Mu­si­cians will of­fer fo­cused pro­fes­sional train­ing and an op­por­tu­nity to bring the city’s tal­ented young mu­si­cians to­gether, pro­duc­ing the per­fect en­vi­ron­ment for creative ex­cel­lence.

It will provide a su­perb foun­da­tion for higher ed­u­ca­tion train­ing op­tions and pro­fes­sional mu­sic ca­reers in the fu­ture.

PCYM is al­ready open for ap­pli­ca­tions on any in­stru­ment and ap­pli­ca­tion forms and fur­ther in­for­ma­tion can be found on the web­site or by email­ing the PCYM cen­tre man­ager – kirsten. barr@peter­bor­ough.gov. uk.
