As part of our string summer school, you may take part in individual lessons, masterclasses, chamber music, mixed ensembles and workshops. You’ll have multiple opportunities to perform regardless of your skill level, culminating in a concert on Saturday afternoon that is open to family and friends.
Whilst we encourage everyone to take part in all performances and activities, we will not force anyone to participate if they don’t want to do so for whatever reason. However, we hope our friendly and accepting community will lead all musicians to take part, even if it is slightly outside of their normal comfort zone!
Who is the course for?
Our string summer school is for musicians aged 8-18. All abilities are welcome.
The course costs £895 residential and £695 non-residential. The course includes meals (lunch and dinner for non-residential).
