                The Guildhall School offers a host of opportunities for people of all ages to explore music and drama, whether taking their very first steps or putting building blocks in place for a professional career. Junior Guildhall is a specialist Saturday School offering advanced training to young people between the ages of 4 and 18. The students are able to combine their Guildhall training with their general education in local schools. They come together to experience and learn about music and drama under the guidance of staff drawn from London’s orchestras and freelance professionals. Most of the students go on to study their chosen discipline full-time at undergraduate level, eventually making careers in the profession, though others can, and do, move into totally different fields. Centre for Young Musicians is a division of the Guildhall School and has provided high quality progressive music training for thousands of talented children from all of London’s boroughs and beyond. The Centre is based at Morley College, close to Waterloo and the South Bank; with further branches in Hestercombe (Somerset) and Norfolk. More than 420 young musicians aged 8 to 18 attend the Saturday Centre for 32 weeks of the school year, each following an individual programme of study across a range of genres from classical to jazz, gamelan, folk and music theatre.

                • Let Out All of Our Imagination (And Then Draw It...)


                  from Erich Pelletier Added 222 0 0

                  If you've visited a website for a university or college at any point in the past five years or so, chances are good that you've seen one of those little inspirational/informational videos where a student of the institution is profiled. It's a popular way for schools to show the range of activities and studies available to people who go there. It's a relatively easy marketing tool, and it's become sort of a formal sub-genre in its own right. This is my version of one of those. A couple of years back, I applied for a position at a university in which I would have been making quite a few of these types of marketing profiles. In an effort to get the attention of my potential employer, I shot and edited this piece over the course of a weekend. Thankfully, my sister was a student at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn at the time (and she was doing some pretty interesting work there), so my subject was close at hand. The two time-lapse shots of New York City in this piece are from iStockphoto. Direction, Camera, and Editing by Erich Pelletier

                    Another parent tells how the Franklin County High School attendance policy caused his son to get all F's on his report card from a 10 day suspension. Miss just 6 days and you get all F's. It's unfair.
