On Course For Music

DISCOVER MUSIC! is a three day summer holiday course for children aged 6-10 years, running from Tuesday 13th to Thursday 15th August 2019, 10:00am - 5:00pm.

Now in its 22nd year, this unique course introduces children aged 6-10 to all of the instruments of the orchestra, including strings, wind, brass, percussion, harp, and piano. If your child would like to play an instrument, but isn't sure which one to choose, then our course will open up the world of music to them, with lots of fun along the way!

The children learn about and have a go on all the instruments. There will also be opportunities to sing and to begin to learn about reading and writing music. For those who have already started learning an instrument, there is the chance to play as part of an orchestra.

All in a safe, supervised environment with plenty of time to play games in our glorious gardens and swim in our heated pool!

Ability: None or very little
Cost: £180
Venue: Hindhead Music Centre, GU26 6BA

On Course For Music

We are well sold on the flute front but really urgently need more harpists to sign up for this course to make some fantastic duos! We have a huge amount of music of levels grade 6 upwards for adult learners, experienced musicians and students aged 16+ Contact me by DM if you have any questions. It’s beautiful accommodation (although one year I found a certain Guy Johnston hiding in my fridge! 😬🤣), a fantastic location to combine with a little holiday although you’ll be wanting to practice and rehearse lots and attend many concerts no doubt!
Key points:
Repertoire learning
Concert planning if applicable
Course concert
Ravel Introduction and Allegro masterclass with full ensemble
Composing and flute, viola and harp trio workshop with Arlene Sierra
Practice and rest time

On Course For Music

Attend James Lisney's four day piano course at Hindhead Music Centre (July 29th - August 1st), and you too could be enjoying this view! There is one spare performer spot still available, as well as several observer places.

Now in its sixteenth year, the course enjoys the atmosphere of a relaxed house party with masterclasses, presentations, Q and A sessions, recitals by students and tutors, and delicious home cooked meals.

Residential accommodation within the house is possible, with some students visiting daily or making their own arrangements in local hotels. As well as our extensive gardens to enjoy, there is a heated outdoor swimming pool.

'James’ expertise and enthusiasm gives everyone the confidence to perform at the daily masterclasses and evening concerts, but it is at the individual sessions, where the magic really happens. It is here that James gives you the full insight into what you are playing – how to tackle the piece as a whole, but more importantly, how to practice the individual sections and master the technical difficulties. Everyone comes away inspired to improve their technique and practice even harder – but also having had a really enjoyable experience working with a true professional. I would wholeheartedly recommend these courses to any aspiring pianist.'
