Our annual residential Summer Course is a week long, with our full complement of conductors, tutors and house staff, concluding with a public concert and professional recording.
All players will play together as a massed ensemble and in smaller groups as well as taking part in daily technique sessions and chamber music. There is plenty of time for relaxation and enjoying organised activities in the evenings after the final rehearsal.
House staff, including at least one qualified first-aider, will be in attendance 24 hours a day to look after the well-being of the players. All staff are subject to DBS checks in line with our Safeguarding policy.
Age: 10 to 25 on the 1st September in the year of the course.
Ideally, players will be of at least Grade 5 and the tutors will allocate players into groups according to standard.
The fee covers musical tuition, accommodation with full board, all course activities, loan of music and instruments in some cases, the concert and any necessary transport for course activities. Travel costs to and from the course are not included.
Remember, if you think you cannot afford the fees, help may be possible. For example, the Society of Recorder Players has the SRP Walter Bergmann Fund to assist young recorder players.
