Royal Philharmonic Society/YCAT Philip Langridge Mentoring Scheme

At the heart of Philip Langridge Mentoring Scheme is the development of a relationship between two musicians – not a teacher/pupil relationship, but one of colleagues. This is essentially something private and elusive and different musicians will respond in different ways. Without being prescriptive, PLMS aims to give space and encouragement to allow discussion of performance issues, exploration of repertoire and the exchange of ideas about interpretation.

Philip Langridge CBE was a Trustee of both the RPS and YCAT and mentoring was something about which he was passionate, as a way that established soloists and ensembles could share their experience and help those starting out.
