The Music for Youth Proms were held on 14th and 15th November 2023, where thousands of young musicians performed alongside each other on stage at the Royal Albert Hall. Two special evening concerts showcased full-scale symphony orchestras alongside Irish dancers, Japanese Taiko drummers and some of the best young jazz bands and singer-songwriters from across the UK. 

This year’s theme centred around a national campaign #thankyourmusicteacher to celebrate inspiring music teachers and highlight how music brings us all together.  

Say thanks to your music teacher

Let’s celebrate music teachers: How you can support the campaign 

Let's come together to honour the incredible influence that music teachers have on our lives. From inspiring a love of music to giving us a platform to express ourselves, these educators have an amazing impact. Music has the ability to connect people from all backgrounds, creating a bond of understanding and harmony. Join us in celebrating these remarkable teachers and the transformative power of music.

Creative Project and Family Chorus

The Proms featured its biggest creative project yet, with a medley of songs written by radio presenter, composer and Music for Youth Ambassador, Jack Pepper. The musical is a thank-you note from Jack to his inspiring piano teacher, Mike, and a celebration of music teachers far and wide. The massed ensemble featured over 1,000 young people each night.


Music for Youth launched a search for two exceptional young pianists who will open the first and second half of the Music for Youth Proms. This opportunity is part of the specially commissioned Creative Project, which has been composed and arranged by MFY Ambassador, Jack Pepper and will feature over 1,000 young musicians from across the UK.
