Event description

Description

An inspiring day led by the National Youth Folk Ensemble artistic team to share approaches to running youth folk ensembles, reflect on folk music learning methods, and celebrate good practice in youth folk music.

National Youth Folk Ensemble Artistic Director Sam Sweeney with core tutors Rob Harbron and Miranda Rutter will lead practical instrumental sessions exploring tools for teaching and developing folk specific techniques and style. Discussion groups and presentations from music hubs and organisations running successful youth folk ensembles, such as ArtForms Leeds (Roots Alive), will showcase different ways of working with young folk musicians.

This day is aimed at musicians who are leading youth folk groups in formal or informal education settings; and music hub staff, peripatetic instrumental teachers and music teachers who are interested in starting a folk group or developing their knowledge of folk style and techniques.
