Backstage #33: Young Musicians Programme at Home

13 Minutes

Backstage 33

Since lockdown, the Young Musicians Programme, or YMP, at Sage Gateshead has by necessity transferred online. This new version — YMP at Home — has enabled almost 180 students to enjoy one-to-one tuition each week via Microsoft Teams. Ian Wylie spoke with one of the music leaders and a couple of her students to see how YMP at Home is actually accelerating learning in some cases, while helping to support music leaders as well as students handle the challenges of lockdown.


Backstage is a regular podcast where we go behind the scenes for exclusive interviews and insights from leading and emerging artists who’ll be taking to the stage at Sage Gateshead, and discover some of the activities that take place, and the communities that meet there.
