Double Time at YST Conservatory

Calling children aged 9-11 years old looking to learn a secondary music instrument in a creative, exploratory environment!


Join the YST Conservatory for Double Time, a musical adventure running from January to April 2019!

Over the course of nine sessions taught by YST orchestral pedagogy students as well as workshops with the Aurora Orchestra (UK), children will learn a second instrument and develop musicianship and creativity in an engaging setting. At the end of the programme, they will perform with Aurora Orchestra musicians at the Victoria Concert Hall Atrium.

  • Be 9-11 years of age in 2019;

  • Have played an instrument for at least one year;

  • Have no experience OR less than one year’s experience in their Double Time instrument.

  • Wind – Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon
