RNCM launches Pathfinder programme11:57, 7th November 2017
The Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) has launched a new three-year programme to help aspiring young musicians within Greater Manchester progress their musical talent.
RNCM Pathfinder aims to increase opportunities for children and young people to access musical activities and support them in overcoming any barriers they face to their musical progression and development.
The initiative is presented in collaboration with the Greater Manchester Music Hub, One Education Music and the BBC Philharmonic.
Working with a dedicated programme coordinator and supported by mentors from the RNCM and BBC Philharmonic, participants will benefit from workshops led by RNCM tutors, opportunities to perform with like-minded musicians and professionals, and the chance to attend free concerts and events.
RNCM Pathfinder has been made possible thanks to a major grant and builds on a pilot project undertaken earlier this year. The ultimate aim of the programme is to build the confidence of children and young people so that they can develop their musical engagement independently.
