Our new Musician Pit Band Workshops are designed to give talented musicians an immersive experience in playing in a professional pit band. This intense one-day course, in partnership with Ealing Music Service and London College of Music, is for anyone aged 11-21, with at least grade 7 on their instrument, looking to learn new skills in performing in a pit band. You'll work with top theatre professionals and top level singers. You will also get the opportunity to show off your own skills in an Audition Masterclass which could lead to you being selected to join the YMT Musician Pool, so bring a 3min excerpt to play in the afternoon.

YMT courses are heavily subsidised by Arts Council England as well as various other brilliant funders, and as a not-for-profit organisation the course fees help us to cover our costs. Please note – Your course fees do not include lunch or refreshments, so please bring lunch and plenty of water.
