NECOM Workshops & Masterclasses

NECOM provides a wide range of specialist masterclasses by visiting guest artists to students of NECOM and Music Educator Members. A major component of scholarships awarded to students from NECOM and Music Educator include masterclasses and lessons with guest musicians. These activities are invaluable experiences for participants and maintain important partnerships and networks between NECOM and professional musicians and organisations.
