For young people, the opportunity to access musical teaching and experiences can be life changing. Creative learning nurtures all aspects of development, building confidence, supporting academic progress and providing a skill for life that brings so much joy for all involved.
Junior LCoM offers young people in the wider Yorkshire region a range of musical opportunities and experiences and allows them to thrive in a safe nurturing environment. We want to raise funds to ensure that cost is not a barrier to accessing junior LCoM.

*An endangered instrument is considered to be one of the following: Oboe, Bassoon, Viola, Cello, Double bass, French horn, Trombone, Tuba. These instruments sadly have a shortage of players. We are encouraging young people to take them up in order to boost their representation in ensembles and increase the variety of musicians we train.
