Welcome to YCAT’s 21cMusician toolkit: a series of interviews, tutorials, videos, blogs and live events, each with a different monthly focus, to help kickstart your career as a musician.

COVID-19 is changing our world as none of us could have anticipated. We round off the year by reflecting on some of the creative ways musicians have kept on performing throughout the crisis, and looking ahead to new horizons in our January event. PLUS new resources on Managing Finances and Self Producing in our 21cMusician toolkit! 

Soprano & composer Héloïse Werner, trumpeter Imogen Whitehead and harpist Olivia Jageurs reflect on the new projects they initiated to help them through the crisis, and the unexpected connections and discoveries they have made along the way. Read their stories.

Welsh tenor Joshua Owen Mills is passionate about sharing the personal finance skills he has developed throughout his career as an opera singer. In a mini-masterclass and budgeting blog commissioned by YCAT, he shares advice for musicians on managing money.
