Courses are open to all orchestral instruments and take place over 6 days in the wonderful surroundings at Rendcomb College, located in the beautiful Cotswolds.

Musicians are housed in dorm-rooms, with all accommodation, meals, music tuition and activities included in the price.

The courses are led by Glyn Oxley, providing a mixture of orchestral and chamber opportunities with outstanding music tutors.  Each course is supported by a team of welfare staff, and will include a range of non-musical afternoon activities alongside a welcome return of the popular 'after-cocoa' evening concerts.

We also offer a non-residential option to younger, less experienced musicians:
