We're already taking bookings for CHILDREN'S HOLIDAY MUSIC, which this year runs from Sunday 16th to Thursday 20th August.
This hugely popular residential course is for children aged 7-12 who play orchestral instruments at about grade 2-6 standard. It combines serious music-making with lots of fun activities, including plenty of time to swim in our lovely heated pool and play games in our glorious gardens!
'My daughter had a simply amazing week and loved all the ensembles and music activities as well as all the games and the fabulous pool. She made lots of lovely new friends too.'
All in a safe and relaxed environment. For more info or to book a place, visit hindheadmusic.co.uk/childrens-holiday-music/, call 01428 604941, or email email@example.com ... See MoreSee Less

Here's a photo we've just uncovered from our archive of American composer Aaron Copland here in the courtyard at Dartington Hall, when he came here in 1958. Amazing to think we had such an eminent composer casually strolling around during his time working at the Summer School.
This summer you can walk in Copland's footsteps! Our composition courses programme is broader than ever, with courses from one of today's leading American composers, Nico Muhly, including a course working on writing for early instruments with gambist Liam Byrne; meanwhile during the folk /baroque week Aidan O'Rourke leads a folk composition course, focused on melody writing; alt-folk experimental music collective Firefly Burning lead a song writing course; while in the final week of the Summer School we're holding a collaborative composition course brings performers and composers together led by Canadian composer Cassandra Miller, English composer Christopher Fox, with soprano Juliet Fraser and Quatuor Bozzini.
