AYM: Elements Day, VocalLab and Mentoring | February

8 & 9 February 2020

AYM Elements: An Introduction to Indian Music

AYM welcomes back sitarist Jasdeep Singh Degun and santoor player Kaviraj Singh to lead an Elements day exploring Indian Music. We’ll be listening, composing and improvising, to explore the core elements and techniques which makes this music so distinctive.

AYM: VocalLab

This month’s VocalLab is led by Rob Gildon.

VocalLab is AYM’s unique vocal resource. Although it is an ensemble made up of voices, VocalLab is much more than a choir! Instead, it is a Vocal Laboratory for AYMs to experiment with their voice, a platform for aural training which develops valuable musical skills and confidence in a relaxed and social environment. VocalLab provides opportunities for AYMs to lead, compose for and develop their own ensemble, using the instrument we all have in common – the voice. The ensemble encapsulates the AYM ethos of bringing an individual’s specific skills to the fore and applying them to a huge range of styles. Through exposure to music from all around the world, covering many centuries, Aldeburgh Young Musicians are encouraged to be versatile and able young musicians.


AYM Mentoring

This weekend is a Mentoring weekend: we are looking forward to welcoming our team of eleven mentors back to Snape Maltings for mentoring sessions.
