Learning & Engagement

National Youth Choir works with young people and teachers across the country through schools projects and in partnership with a variety of Music Hubs. Run by experienced National Youth Choir Vocal Leaders and supported by National Youth Choir Fellows, our workshops empower young people through singing. 

Our workshops are:  

  • Accessible & inclusive for all
