Mentoring Awards 2018

The OfO mentoring programme matches suitable students with educational experiences donated by supporters. The experience will be tailored to suit the needs and experience level of the student. In the past, students have shadowed cathedral Directors of Music, observed rehearsals for services and concerts, observed continuo players in rehearsals, and been able to play and in some cases have a lesson on important instruments.

The response to our Mentoring Initiative has been fantastic. Venues and individuals have donated wonderful experiences to our students, and feedback has been tremendously positive from our generous donors and students alike.
