The Guild places special emphasis on educational projects which encourage young pianists to perform with other musicians.
Junior Ensemble Musicians (JEM) provides an opportunity for pianists in primary school to experience the art of chamber music. The pianists are joined by other instrumentalists or singers, also of primary school age, to participate in a masterclass and public performance.
Check out the 2016 JEM performers here.
See the JEM info & app form 2017 for further details, and please be in touch if you feel this would be a good opportunity for your child or student.
