Chamber Music Programme (Ages 14-18)
Our unique chamber music programme is for 14–18 year old musicians with a passion for small ensemble playing.
Under the guidance of some of the UK’s foremost chamber music specialists, the week-long programme will see our students explore a range of challenging music in depth, focusing on ensemble technique in an immersive and collaborative environment.
Each day, students will warm up as a whole school before rehearsing in their chamber groups. Our specialized tutors will assist students in developing essential ensemble skills such as tuning and intonation, communication, dynamics and phrasing.
We also ensure that students gain a deep understanding of musical style, encouraging them to think about and interpret the historical and cultural context of the music. In addition to rehearsing in ensembles, our chamber students receive individual lessons and participate in a broad range of musicianship workshops.
Every week, our students take part in a wide range of vocal, instrumental and rhythmical workshops led by internationally renowned experts in jazz, chamber, folk and international music. These workshops are designed to broaden each student's musical experience by exposing them to something new.
Our industry experts lead a variety of workshops that have included:
Musical awareness, performance skills and interpretation
Composing and arranging
Jazz improvisation and performance
Instrumental improvisation and devising music
Beatboxing and a cappella
Life in the industry
Health instrumental practice techniques and avoiding injury
