SGFYM has given my students the opportunity to perform to an audience in a relaxed and friendly environment, and receive feedback from another source, which is always so very helpful for students and teachers alike.
My son has enjoyed his past experiences with SGFYM having taken part since he was just 5 years old. The ‘team’ are always so friendly, welcoming & accommodating and we are both looking forward to participating for many years to come.
Fostering excellence in solo performance, the South Glamorgan Festival for Young Musicians offers outstanding young players valuable platform experience in a friendly but professional atmosphere.
My three children all found the experience throughly enjoyable. Although they were nervous competing and performing the adjudicators created a relaxed atmosphere and the whole experience was about learning not just from their own performances but those of others.
I loved the way that time was taken to demonstrate techniques and suggest improvements for dynamics and artistic interpretation. Care was taken when giving feedback and there was a real understanding of the difficulties encountered at each stage of learning an instrument.
I consider this a really valuable festival and competition.
