2018 Summer School
We are delighted to announce the details for the 2018 Manchester Single Reed Summer School.
This year’s course will run from the 25th-27th July at St Ambrose Preparatory School, Hale Barns, South Manchester. Course leader Rob Buckland (Saxophones) will be joined by Helen Bywater, Clarinettist, Matt Dunn, respected Clarinettist and educator, and Ruth Bourn, Saxophonist and tutor at Junior RNCM. Visiting guest tutors will also be coming to lead special workshops.
Building on the previous nine years of courses, the 2018 Summer School programme promises to be another exciting one. We have devised a packed timetable including masterclasses, technique workshops, chamber music, large ensembles and improvisation sessions, and particpants will also have access to a comprehensive trade exhibition throughout the course, giving them the chance to try the latest instruments and accessories from a wide range of manufacturers.
This year's fee for the 3 day course is just £195, with a 20% sibling discount if you have more than one budding Single Reed student in the family.
Many of the students who attend this course return year after year, building new friendships in the warm and welcoming atmosphere of this popular and successful course. The wide range of musical activities allows each student learn at their own pace, and to take away building blocks for their development throughout the year. Many of our past students have gone on to not only raise their playing to higher levels, but in several cases gain entry into some of the UK's leading conservatoires.
