Film Music Course


Film Music Course 2019
with the Gloucestershire Youth Orchestra 
Tuesday 9th & Wednesday 10th April 2019

If you are an advanced young orchestral musician (aged 21 or under) then why not join GYO for their first two day film music course.  Under the guidance of GM staff and visiting professional musicians from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire of Music you will cover some of the great music from stage and screen.

The course will be held on Tuesday 9th & Wednesday 10th April 2019 at Sir Thomas Rich’s School, Gloucester. 10am - 4pm.

The course is free to attend thanks to the support of 'The Friends of GYO'.

It is now too late to register online but you can turn up Tuesday 9th April - full details below.  If you are under 18 you will need a parent / adult to complete details on arrival.

Jon Trim (GYO conductor) has chosen some great music to cover which will include music from Harry Potter and from film composer John Williams (including Star Trek and Mission Impossible).

We have joined forces with the LEAP Ensemble from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire who will be providing some top notch tutors to help us over the two day course.  These will include Douglas Mitchell (Associate Head of Woodwind at the RBC) and Amos Miller (Head of Brass for the RBC).

What do I need to bring?
Just your instrument, a pencil, drinks and lunch.  Music stands are provided.  We are (sorry to say) unable to allow those aged under 16 to leave the building during the day so please bring lunch with you. 

When and where
The course will be held at Sir Thomas Rich’s School.  Parking is available and reception can be found to the far left hand side of the school – follow the big yellow signs.  Please arrive at 09:30 ready for a prompt 10 am start.

Is there a performance?
GYO and the Gloucestershire Youth Choir will present a short performance of what we have covered around 3:30pm on Wednesday - hope you can bring some family and friends to help support.
