Who are we?

The Scottish International Flute Summer School was founded in 1996 by Ruth Morley and Peter Lloyd.  We have grown into a world renowned flute course that offers you the chance to study with some of the world’s leading flute players in an incredibly supportive environment.

What do we do?

We aim to provide you with inspiration and new ideas that you can use to develop your flute playing.  Our non-competitive ethos ensures an environment that will empower and enable risk-taking!

As an international school there is the exciting opportunity to expand your horizons by spending time with flute players from all over the world!

Is it for me?

Are you…

  • a music student at a conservatoire or university?
  • a flute teacher or a young professional player?
  • at school and considering study on a performance course?
  • an advanced amateur playing for pleasure?  (Minimum recommended standard is grade 5 and above)
  • aged 16 or older?

Then the answer is YES, one of our course options will be suitable for you and can provide a week of fluting that will inspire.

Come for a week and enjoy the results for a lifetime!

What’s new for 2018?

As always we are looking to improve and to evolve, so for 2018, we are excited to unveil a new structure for The Scottish International Flute Summer School.

2 fully customisable week-long courses for you to choose from

  • Intensive Performer


  • Advanced Performer

The short course is no longer available but if you wish to come for a shorter time then you we would love to welcome you as a Day Auditor.  Please contact us if you have any queries about this change and how it affects you.

Secondly, we have worked out a way for our international attendees to save money when transferring their course fees.  Banks have in the past charged up to 5% in hidden costs but we have discovered  TransferWise which is up to 8 times cheaper.

The Scottish International Flute Summer School is a not for profit organisation dedicated to providing the highest quality of flute tuition.
