Who is YYM for?
YYM is an inclusive scheme aimed at exceptionally talented young musicians between the ages of 8 and 16.
It is open to all, regardless of their means, their social or ethnic background, or whether they have any disability.
It is musically inclusive, too. It is designed to identify and nurture exceptional talent in all areas of performance and across a wide range of genres and traditions.
How good do I have to be?
You need to possess very high levels of musicianship and to wish to dedicate a significant amount of time to developing your skills still further.
This does not mean that you need to have achieved a certain level of pass in music exams, or any specific formal education achievement. Your ability will be assessed via audition and your acceptance into YYM will be based on potential, not just current achievement.
If you are unsure whether YYM will be suitable or not, just ask for an advice audition.
