About CPYE

CPYE was set up in 2012 and is run by a voluntary committee of parents.

Our aim and our passion is to provide the opportunity for the regions musical youngsters to come together, play, enjoy and perform music. CPYE is the perfect place for students to put everything they learn in their music lessons to the very best use by sharing the experience of making music together.

To be part of the junior ensemble each student must be at least a Grade 1 level or equivalent and have enthusiasm and commitment to work with other youngsters of all ages. The junior ensemble provides the students with a fun introduction to the skills required to play together before moving onto the senior ensemble who perform more challenging material.

Our Music Leaders


CPYE is very lucky to be led by 2 dedicated musicians Rebecca Railton and David Parsons. Each have many years of experience on their instruments and aim to motivate and pass on their passion to the students. CPYE members come from a variety of schools in the area, giving our young musicians a great opportunity to make new friends, who have similar interests and a desire to create music.
