NYO Continued Professional Development


Calling all music teachers, music professionals and music education hubs and services! Come and spend an immersive day with us on guiding teenage musicians in their orchestral playing.

You’ll have the opportunity to openly discuss ideas and develop your skills in nurturing young musicianship by observing our rehearsals, Tutors, and Conductors, and participating in our conducting workshops. It’ll also be a valuable opportunity for us to learn more about your work and see how we can support you year round.

How to Get Involved

Sign up here to reserve your free place in any of our year-long series of CPD opportunities outlined below.  There is no restriction on the number of activities you can sign up for. If there's space, we'll reserve a place for you!
