YEP! – The Youth Ensemble Project
The Youth Ensemble Project is a creative ensemble based in Cornwall, run by professional musicians. We aim to help young musicians, including those with little or no composition experience, to compose or re-arrange music as a group and then publicly perform. We also signpost musicians to opportunities, give industry advice and guidance and bring in other professional musicians along the way.
We have sent you this email as you may know or work with young musicians that may benefit from attending YEP! We need your help in signposting young people to this wonderful opportunity. Please forward this email to other professionals and colleagues that may be able to help.
YEP! has been a fantastic stepping stone for young musicians in Cornwall to develop their skills in composition, working as part of a group, performance skills, recording techniques and gaining inspiration from peers and professional musicians.
