Youth Music

Roseland Youth Music (RYM) is the educational branch of Roseland Music Society. It promotes musical activity among young people on the Roseland; provides professional musicians to work in local schools; enables children to experience live music of all types;  see and hear a range of musical instruments being played and offers students the opportunity to participate in practical workshops involving listening, composing, improvising, singing, playing and performing together.

Since  RYM school visits began in 2004 more than 5,500 local pupils have had the unique opportunity to listen to Professional Musicians and expand their music education.

Ian is on the teaching staff at Chetham's Music School and his new work "Carricknath for Clarinet and Orchestra" will be premiered on the following day at Truro Methodist Church.


Ian's new work has been commissioned by the Radford Trust (a Roseland charity which celebrated its 50th Anniversary having done so much for music in Cornwall) and the 2022 Cornwall Music Festival,  which also celebrates a big Anniversary this year.


The Cornwall Music Festival has been a core part of young musicians' performing opportunity for many years since Lady Mary Trefusis first founded it.
