Music Courses

Music Courses and Workshops

Our music courses are available all year round. All you need to do is choose which course you would like and then find a date in our online calendar that suits you. If you would like to come as a group of friends then just get in touch with us to discuss your dates and repertoire and we will tailor make your music course. Whilst they are popular on weekends they can be held during the week too. The instrument courses can also be held alongside the chamber music course (i.e you could have one to one tutoring on your instrument in between the chamber music coaching sessions) The Tutors vary for each course depending on availability, we discuss this with you.
