YOMA - MUSIC EDUCATION AT INTERNATIONAL TOP LEVEL
Thanks to the support of Signatur Foundation Sweden – the National Centre for Musical Talents (NCM) is developing its activities at a rapid pace in line with its objective;
– to be a national meeting and education platform on a top international level.
– to inspire other activities throughout the country, including through collaboration with cultural schools.
– to strengthen the re-growth of the music profession.
Nowadays, NCM presents itself as YOMA – Young Musicians Academy – to be more inclusive in its appeal to new stakeholders.
THREE AMBITIOUS DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS
The support from Signatur Foundation Sweden is deployed in three ambitious development projects. These bring together young musicians who are on the way to international top level with other interested students who play orchestral instruments and want to develop further.
- Project 1 is aimed at young musicians who play short supply instruments such as oboe, bassoon, French horn, viola and double bass – instruments that are played by few and that are particularly important in the genre.
- Project 2 strengthens collaborations with the country’s cultural schools.
- Project 3 invests in the expansion of NCM’s Nordic co-operation.
YOMA offers excellent teaching facilities at its base in Vänersborg, but also significant competence in online teaching. This makes the centre a popular meeting place “IRL” and online for young musicians aged 10-18 years. And also for their teachers and external partners.
The National Centre for Musical Talents is a non-profit association. Partners working with NCM are the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra, the Norrland Opera Symphony Orchestra, the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Vänersborg Municipality, Västerås Sinfonietta, music colleges and Regional Music in Sweden with their 23 member organizations.
