Short Courses

We tutor a number of short courses throughout the year, mostly on behalf of the host venues.

Dates for the remainder of 2023 are as follows:

Courses at Higham Hall, Bassenthwaite Lake, Cockermouth, Cumbria, CA13 9SH


25 – 27th Aug: Starters Mini-Orchestra

Our mini-orchestra for C woodwind and bowed strings caters primarily for players of Grade 1 – 4 standard. Enjoy making music in a group with music tailored to your ability and experience level. (Sorry, no clarinets or saxophones – C woodwind only to keep keys beginner-string-friendly!) More info…


Courses at Benslow Music Trust, Hitchin, Hertfordshire

We have run several courses each year for Benslow Music Trust in the past but have not been offered dates for courses in 2023.

A light-hearted weekend course on the beautiful Isle of Skye, designed for wind players whose enthusiasm perhaps outweighs their expertise! Music tailored to ability and confidence levels. Non-residential, but accommodation at the venue can be booked separately. Find out more
