On Course For Music

Do you play a wind instrument? If so, head to our week four course listings in this year's Dartington Music Summer School! We are delighted to be joined this year by the "hugely gifted" Magnard Ensemble who will lead wind chamber music and coaching for both single and double reed players. The ever popular Steve Dummer, master clarinetist and conductor (Horsham Symphony Orchestra, CoMA Sussex) leads the wind band course too, which is an open course for woodwind, brass and percussion.

Here's the link to take you straight to the courses page for that week: www.dartington.org/whats-on/programme/summer-school/courses/week-4

Calling all wind players! We're looking to encourage new people onto our Wind Chamber Music Course, tutored by David Cowley, at Uppingham School 1-8 August 2020. We know there are lots of players who'd love this chance to play in a wind quintet but matching people together takes time and consideration so please register your interest with us ASAP. Flutes, clarinets, oboes, horns and bassoons - email us now on admin@cssm.org.uk to get your name in the frame for a windy musical journey! Here's a pic of all our wind players from the different courses joining to make the Symphonic Wind Orchestra - which you'd also be able to play in. More info at www.cssm.org.uk. ... See MoreSee Less

On Course For Music

Our 2020 summer courses are open for booking, and over the next few posts, we thought we'd tell you about each of them individually. First up is CHILDREN'S HOLIDAY MUSIC, running from Sunday 16th to Thursday 20th August 2020.

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 info@hindheadmusiccentre.co.uk
