Ensemble Activities

Overview

The YES School of Music advocates for ensemble playing from a young age to further children's musical development. Young children start their ensemble playing at YES one year after commencing lessons (or as soon as they are able to read music) by joining the Junior Orchestra. After 5 or more years of training, students will graduate to the Intermediate Orchestra.

Advanced students will be invited to join the Young European Strings Chamber Orchestra (YESCO), which, to date, has released three studio albums and has toured extensively throughout Europe.
