The National Youth Orchestras of Scotland’s Training Ensembles are four, short, non-auditioned summer courses for strings, pedal harp and brass. The courses focus on learning repertoire, listening skills, musicianship, audition preparation and having fun! 

NYOS Training Ensembles are designed for younger players between the age of 8 and 14 working on Grade 2 material upwards for brass instruments and Grade 3 material upwards for wind, strings and harp.

Thanks to external funding, from Creative Scotland’s Youth Music Initiative and other trusts and foundations, bursaries of up to 100% are available for participants who find it difficult to meet the costs of our membership fees. Each case is assessed individually, and all applications are treated in the strictest confidence. To find out more please click here. 

Applications for 2021 are now closed. Applications for 2022 will open again in February the same year.
