NMS Enrolment Day - 2019-20
7 September

Welcome to a new academic year! 

Enrolment Day for the Robin Hood Youth Orchestra, RHYO Intermediate and Band Factory was on September 7 (Saturday) at Nottingham College (Clarendon Campus). If you were unable to attend, you can fill out the enrolment form and make your payments online (see links below).

Ensemble Fee Payments

For young people living or studying in the city, the annual cost of joining any RHYO ensemble is £48 (£11 concessions). Please note that you only have to pay one annual fee but can be part of more than one RHYO ensemble.

For young people living AND studying in the county, please note that the annual cost of joining a RHYO ensemble is £90.

New and renewing members for all ensembles (except RHYO) can make their payment online now. New members for RHYO will have a trial period and are requested to hold off on their payments for now.


Alternatively, you can make the payment at Music School on Saturday by cash, card or cheque.

Please note that if you are eligible for a concessionary rate (£11), you can make the payment in person. For anyone who cannot make the payment in full, please talk to an NMS staff member on the day and we will arrange a payment plan with you.

We believe music is for everyone. To make our ensembles and groups accessible for all, we keep our fees as low as possible. Did you know that the actual (average) cost for our music service ensembles is £170 per person/year? This means that every year we have a huge amount to fundraise so that we can keep our programmes running.
