Welcome to Encore Music Projects 6th International Summer School

Following on from the hugely successful courses in previous years, we are delighted that our summer school will again take place in the beautiful and historic setting of Wells Cathedral Specialist Music School, internationally renowned for attracting many of the most gifted young musicians from around the world to study at the school.

  • We invite students, children and young adults, from all around the world to come and develop their musical talents in a safe and stimulating environment, creating music and friendships.
  • We aim to inspire our students with tuition and guidance of the highest calibre, in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
  • We offer our students the fantastic opportunity to listen to and perform with our team of world-class performers and teachers, set in a stunning location.
  • We provide our students with outstanding facilities for making music as well as enjoying comfortable living accommodation and high-quality food.

About the Summer School

Encore Music Projects International Summer School was founded in 2013 by pianist Olena Shvetsova and her cellist husband Richard May to create a summer programme in the exclusive setting of a UK Specialist Music School.

  • The course is for piano, strings, guitar, composition, voice, and chamber ensembles, and is especially designed for intermediate and advanced students.
  • Expert tuition and guidance by our team of world class musicians will focus on the development of technique, musical styles and interpretation, stage performance and presentation, competition and audition preparation.
  • There will be opportunities to explore new as well as current repertoire.
  • The emphasis will be on making music together, and on top of a daily one-to-one lesson, chamber music, piano/vocal masterclasses/workshops, every student (instrument appropriate) will participate in the String Chamber Orchestra and our Community Choir.
  • Theory tuition will also be available.

In the evenings there will be a series of concerts given by our world-class faculty as well as the chance to get together for informal chamber music making. There will be time for recreation, including free use of the school’s covered swimming pool, organised activities and games, and a free day to explore the fabulous sights around Wells.

For those parents who may be considering sending their children to Wells Cathedral School for their education, the course offers a unique chance to experience the atmosphere of the school. Encore Music Projects very much looks forward to welcoming our students to Wells in the summer 2019, for a memorable musical experience.
