#NewTalentLiveChats Series

We are running a series of live interviews (#NewTalentLiveChats) on Instagram/Facebook with our previous competition award winners and guest musicians to talk about how they are dealing with the situation around Covid-19 and how they are keeping themselves engaged and motivated through this challenging time as well as some practice and performance tips.

We hope these chats serve as a platform for young musicians to share and inspire, to encourage and motivate each other and to inject a sense of community and confidence at this challenging time.
