I was so excited to find out I would be an Associate Accompanist and I am very much looking forward to working with the choir. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such a talented group of young people who are so enthusiastic about music making.

Jamie, from Crieff, is the Associate Accompanist for NYCOS National Boys Choir. He is currently studying Astrophysics at Edinburgh University whilst working towards a DipABRSM in piano. Prior to this, he studied piano and viola at the RCS Junior Conservatoire. He is currently accompanist for The Seven Hill’s Chorus, St Andrew Camerata and Crieff Choral Society.


As someone with a strong interest in choral music both as a singer and accompanist, I’m excited to be spending a whole week working with such a distinguished choir and conductor.

I’m very much looking forward to working with NYCOS for their summer course, where I will definitely learn as much as the choir members will.
