Summer School

This year we have on line courses to keep us all in touch and to share some great teaching.

Bookings are  now available for Dr Ron Morris’ vocal pedagoy course and otheyrs will be added very shortly.

  • Bookings are now open for Carola Emrich-Fischer’s Mindfulness for Musicians and for Arlene Sierra and Kenneth Hesketh’s Advanced Composition course.

The normal course will run in 2021.Based on the ethos of ‘ learning through listening, practice & performance’, courses are run for chamber music, clarinet, voice, flute, solo strings, composition, bassoon, conducting, big band and jazz, musical theatre and Refresh and Inspire with Practical Psychology. Throughout the week the artists in residence can be found coaching ensembles, leading workshops, giving masterclasses and performing in the Festival concerts. Students also have the opportunity to perform in public and enjoy free entry to all festival events.

The Summer School is unique in offering organised, structured chamber music opportunities and coaching, as well as superb learning experiences through the festival of concerts given by the tutors themselves (as resident artists all of them are leading performers as well as inspirational teachers).
