Seniors

Through a carefully planned programme of sectional and full rehearsals, NYSO’s Senior Course sets out to help young players develop the special ensemble skills and techniques necessary to play successfully as a member of a chamber orchestra section. The aim is for each section to play “as one”.

Major works in the string orchestra repertoire, from the baroque era through to the present day, are selected for the various challenges they present; both technical and musical. Students work with professional string players whose careers have been spent performing these works all over the world.

Pastoral staff are always on hand to ensure the welfare of students, and provide many different opportunities to relax in the free time.

Intermediates

The aim of the NYSO Intermediate Courses is to help students at a critical stage of their musical development to ‘Make Connections’ between all the different musical experiences coming at them.

Realising that theory, aural and physical response to rhythm all come together at the point where performance begins, is an eye-opener for young players.

At a time when the demands of progressing on an instrument are warring with increased expectation academically, young players need to understand how to connect everything together efficiently to achieve maximum musical development for time spent practising.

To this end, the Intermediate NYSO Course consists of sessions on Dalcroze Eurhythmics and Kodaly together with sectional and full rehearsals. The Intermediate Courses are proving popular - parents and teachers recognise that the course content is fulfilling a valuable need for their children/pupils.
