events are aimed at enthusiastic young musicians aged 11-19 years
old who wish to improve their composition, band and general performance

build each attendee's general confidence, improve their social skills,
self-responsibility and competence. Inevitably every course sees
the nurturing of new friendships amongst those with similar passions
