Are you ready for a musical feast?

Are you ready for a musical feast?

We hope so, because New Talent Festival is back for its 7th glorious year.

The festival is hosted in residence at one of our Official Partners – the Royal Academy of Music. And with the support of members of the Royal Northern College of Music, Royal College of Music, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Eton College and Harrow School, New Talent Festival keeps going from strength to strength.

You’ll meet young musicians from all over the world and learn from some of the best international music teachers. There are one-to-one masterclasses, interactive workshops, concert and of course, the New Talent Festival Competition.

Over the past 6 years, more than 1200 young musicians from 35 countries have taken part. And this year, we’re hoping even more of you will spread your musical wings with us.

At least 3 interactive workshops

Interactive workshops by members of the competition jury.

Music is so much more than learning to play the right notes. These interactive sessions discuss all sorts of aspects of music. The physical, the mental and the emotional – we chat about what it takes to get the most out of your wonderful musical talents.

Themes of the workshops span from ‘How to practise more efficiently’, ‘to ‘What are UK private schools looking for in a music scholar’.Workshops will take place on the morning of 14th July.

Timetable will be shared in due course.
