Through Young Musician - We are Using Music - To Bring Peace to Our World
Scientific research proves music is important to people around the globe because listening to it is almost always a positive experience: be it joyful, restorative, transporting or healing.
This is significant in an evolutionary sense, because we big-brained creatures fret about the future and our immediate circumstances, which can lead to apprehension and depression. We are sometimes desperately in need of pleasure as a counterbalance. Music does not just soothe us “savage beasts”, it sustains us while bringing peace.
Some Rotary Clubs have commenced their local heats of Young Musician. Through this encouragement of young peoples’ musical talent you are helping to promote peace. Whole communities can benefit. Young peoples’ musical life is expanded as they are encouraged to perform and demonstrate their talent and skills either classical or modern. The community audience benefits by listening to these young people. By doing this you are giving people from all walks a more peaceful world.
Planning is well advanced for the RIBI National Final and invitations, along with travel and accommodation details will be available in the New Year. Please make sure you have the date in your diary and that your local school knows it too: May 16th 2015.

If as a District or Region you will be sending competitors to the RIBI Young Musician final please read the Rules carefully to ensure competitors comply with each section.

Music is the international language and Great Britain and Ireland is home some of the most talented young instrumentalists and vocalists in the world. RIBI celebrates this talent with a sequence of competitions that offer thousands of young people the chance to demonstrate their musical skills - classical and modern.
