Lunchtime Activities

The majority of students will have time off between 1.00pm and 2.00pm on Saturdays.

Most weeks throughout the year performances from CYM students/ensembles take place either at Morley College, at Notre Dame School or indeed at both. We also have:

  • Visiting artists who run master classes and workshops
  • University Talks on further education
  • Taster sessions on various instruments
  • Talks from experts about buying instruments

All students who have free time are expected to attend at least four such events each term. We provide Lunchtime Activity Cards which are stamped each week and collected at the end of the year. The students who have attended most concerts throughout the year are then awarded with an Award Card worth £10.00 to spend at the Notre Dame Canteen where the Friends of CYM sell food, beverages, music, and instrument accessories e.g reeds.

Listening to, and taking part in performances is an essential part of the training in the “performance art” of music and these activities are regarded as essential opportunities for CYM students to enhance their experience.
