About the event

The event will cover the differences between music assessment, mentoring, adjudicating and examining, as well as approaches to assessment, practical written/verbal exercises and self-evaluation.

Music for Youth is a national youth arts charity working to provide young people aged 21 and under across the UK with free, life-changing performance and progression opportunities, regardless of background or musical style. The MU sponsors Music for Youth to support and encourage the next generation of professional musicians.

Becoming a Music Mentor

Music for Youth engages professional musicians as Music Mentors to give expert feedback to young musicians and teachers – both written and verbal, on performances submitted to Music for Youth online or at physical events.

Please note: this event is not a recruitment event for becoming a Music Mentor. However, it will help you find out more about the role should you wish to apply.

Typically, MFY Music Mentors are professional musicians who also have experience of education-based work. Some are primarily from education settings. MfY is looking to increase and diversify its pool of mentors to reflect the range of music and young people it works with.

Find out more about Music Mentors on the Music For Youth website.

The trainers will be:

  • Zoe Coakley, Head of Projects, MfY

The event will run on Zoom. We are using Zoom so that participants will be able to interact, so please expect to participate fully. We are capping the numbers at each event at 25 participants, first come first served.

A Zoom link will be provided two days before the workshop. Please tell us if you can no longer attend so that another member can take your place.
