"I was slightly nervous when I arrived but the atmosphere was so warm and welcoming that I fitted in immediately. Whether you had been at NYSO for years or you were on your first residency it was very easy to make friends. During the residencies I developed my musicality, posture and sight-reading and became more confident generally. The section tutors and my fellow musicians really changed the way I feel about playing the violin."
