Session Details:

Private Lessons

Receive a one-to-one private lesson with one of our world class tutors. All private lessons are 45-minutes and we do our best to accommodate requests for specific tutors.

Masterclass Performance

A 45-minute slot where you perform in front of the whole summer school and then work in a supportive environment with our internationally renowned tutors to take your playing to the next level.

Piano Coaching Sessions

Two 30-minute piano coaching sessions with our fantastic pianists will give you the chance to rehearse for your masterclass and the final concert.  It’s also a good opportunity to try new repertoire.

Technique Classes

Our informative technique classes will explore different approaches to the many fundamentals of playing the flute.  Each Class will have a maximum of 10 students in order to keep things intimate. 

Orchestral Excerpts Classes

Learn how to nail those infamously difficult orchestral auditions.  Our tutors share their unique insights, experience and practice methods to help you learn an important and difficult skill.  Advanced Performers can sit in and observe these classes as an additional extra.

Flute Choir Sessions

Play in a flute choir with your fellow students and work towards performing a concert at the end of the week! 

Mini-MasterClass

A mini masterclass attended only by other students on your course.  This is a scaled-down version of our Masterclasses which will allow you to perform in an encouraging and intimate environment.

Morning Warm Up Class

Wake up your flute muscles with our morning warm up class. 45 minutes split between  mindfulness meditation and technical warm up.

Explore Circular Breathing

A 45 minute class where you can learn circular breathing from the master, Ian Clarke!

Baroque Class

This year Lis Dooner will lead two linked workshops sharing her valuable insights into the world of Baroque and Baroque flute and bring baroque flutes for you to try!

Individual Performance Psychology Session

After the success of Lee Holland’s introductory workshop to Performance Psychology last year we are now delighted to offer one-to-one sessions.  This 30 minute slot will include an initial assessment (pre course) to identify and assess your unique challenges and strengths before helping you develop valuable mental skills to perform at high levels.  Further information on Lee Holland’s work.

Chamber Music
