AREA CHOIRS FOR BOYS


Come and play at our free workshop

WHY JOIN A NYCoS AREA BOYS CHOIR? NYCoS Area Boys Choirs are part of the National Youth Choir of Scotland, the organisation dedicated to encouraging singing for young people aged 0–24. From tiny tots learning in our Mini Music Makers classes to young adults giving critically-acclaimed performances as part of the flagship National Choir, we help young singers reach their full potential. Experience shows that boys fare better at singing when they are in their own team. At a NYCoS Area Boys Choir our enthusiastic and expert staff provide great singing experiences that are both fun and develop musical skills. Taking part has many other benefits too: • make new friends • boost confidence • build social skills WHAT HAPPENS AT THE FREE WORKSHOP? Our half-hour workshops are a fun and informal way to try out singing with others. Small groups, wherever possible with other boys from the same school, take part in some simple singing games.

“My son loves to sing and has enjoyed being part of the choir. It has boosted his confidence no end.”


WHAT HAPPENS AT A NYCoS AREA CHOIR? In the first year, choir meets for an hour every week during term time, where they learn and sing together with other boys their age. But being part of a NYCoS Area Boys Choir isn’t just about singing in a group; our unique musicianship programme helps to develop skills such as learning to read music, pitching, rhythm, sound production, solo singing and simple theory. There are concerts for family and friends twice a year, where choir members showcase all they have learned. NYCoS AWARDS PROGRAMME Our awards programme offers progression through its three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold, which chart choir members’ development as they work towards goals – ultimately providing a real sense of achievement. A Gold level pass can be used as a substitute for ABRSM Grade 5 Theory to take further ABRSM practical exams. HOW MUCH DOES A MEMBERSHIP COST? The membership fee for the first full year is £120 – just £4 per rehearsal. If cost is an issue, don’t be put off as flexible payment options and financial assistance is available. HOW DO I SIGN UP?
