The transition from education to a career in music is a time of great uncertainty. With most musicians juggling a variety of job roles, the reality of building a portfolio career can be daunting and rewarding in equal measure. 

For 35 years, YCAT has been at the forefront of nurturing young artists through specialised management to build their careers and enable them to become self-supporting. We know the struggles and needs of young musicians. 

YCAT offers support to all emerging musicians in two key areas:

21cMusician toolkit: building the necessary skills to build a performing career in the 21st century. 

With more musicians managing their own careers, the ability to think strategically, self promote and network effectively is crucial. 

YCAT’s 21cMusician toolkit presents a constantly evolving library of free, relevant, and actionable content, alongside live events and networking opportunities, to help young professionals thrive.

Self knowledge: an understanding of one’s own strengths, goals, and vision of success is fundamental to a fulfilling career. 

Individual Coaching sessions through YCAT are designed to provide a space to look afresh at opportunities and ideas from a different perspective. 

They provide a private and confidential space for you to reflect on your progress and think clearly about the next stages in your career.
