Event Description

The BKA’s Summer School returns for 2019, featuring a week of intense fun and learning with teaching from some of the finest minds in music education.

At the 37th International Summer school you will be exposed to a wide range of musical styles, develop musicianship and work with like-minded people who take music and having fun very seriously.

Further information will be published shortly.

‘Already, I have started embedding these new ways of thinking with my new class of 10 – to 16-year-old musicianship students, who, after just one month of teaching, have already told me how much easier and FUN their musicianship class is… Magic!’ – Laura McFall, musicianship teacher and classical singer, Northern Ireland

‘It’s difficult to find the words to describe the BKA Summer School experience to somebody who hasn’t seen it for themselves. So rather than spouting superlatives, perhaps the biggest testimony I can give is that when I had to go home, I sobbed and gulped like a baby who had had all of his favourite dinosaur toys taken away.’ – Jimmy Rotheram

The 2019 London Handel Festival takes ‘Handel’s Divas’ as its theme and will explore the lives of the famous women singers – the divas of their day – who were associated with Handel and for whom he wrote many of his most famous roles.

The Chetham’s International Summer School and Festival for Pianists is a source of inspiration, fun, insight and focus for everyone who enjoys the piano and piano-playing.

Now in its nineeenth year, it continues to grow and develop as a ‘piano republic of equals’. There is no elitism on the course, though everyone is extremely serious about piano playing.

There is no other Summer school that manages to cater for the universal: Adult amateurs, promising children, and observers are as welcome on the course as concert pianists, international young artists preparing for top competitions, and professional music teachers.
