Are you ready to power up our musical universe with #NYOMusicalPlanet? These handy video clips created by NYO musicians have all the top tips to help you prepare.


At 5.00pm BST on 29 May, we are inviting musicians around the globe to take part in a live, socially distanced performance of ‘Jupiter’ from Holst’s The Planets, celebrating the power of music to connect us across any distance. We are asking everyone to play at the same time to family or local audiences, and feel connected to others, even though we cannot see or hear each other.


To help you get the most from your performance, our musicians have been busy creating a series of videos for each instrument which explore playing techniques and some top tips for ‘Jupiter’. From breathing, scales, metronomes and string fingerings, delve into the musical details with us and find out how we’ve been practising and our advice for others.
