Event Description

The Oxford Cello School (OCS) is an international cello and double bass summer school founded in 1980 by Marianne Gottfeldt to provide a unique opportunity for cellists and bassists to focus on their instrument and receive the very best tuition in an intensive environment.

This remains our philosophy. Our dedicated and enthusiastic staff, as well as other course members, provide inspiration and encouragement which stimulates students to develop previously unexploited potential.

Since its establishment the OCS has been proud to welcome students of all ages, backgrounds, nationalities and abilities. Our orchestras take advantage of the cello’s unrivalled versatility and have performed a vast repertoire of works from all musical eras including pieces from eminent modern composers commissioned by the OCS.

We take the task of helping players to improve very seriously and our excellent staff/student relationship creates the ideal relaxed atmosphere in which to achieve fantastic results. Flexibility is always a priority and we consider the individual needs of each and every student to be of paramount importance.

We look forward to working with you to make a year’s progress in a week!

About the course

This innovative and creative course is aimed at music producers and musicians who want to develop professional production and musicianship skills, and then go on to learn the business skills needed to create a sustainable career within the music industry.

The course has been designed in response to the ever increasing demand for high quality practical and vocational training at a higher educational level, by those wishing to develop their skills and experience in the music industry, both as a creative music maker and as a business entrepreneur. With excellent links to the music industry, it is a programme designed to firstly develop students’ creative and technological skills and ability, and then to focus on how students can channel these skills into their career and business development. This course is collaboration between Community Music Ltd – a vibrant and innovative music education and training company based in central London and the University of Westminster.

Community Music has a long standing tradition of training and artist development using up to date industry standard equipment and facilities. The University of Westminster has a thriving music department and commercial music degree with state-of-the-art recording studios and extensive library and IT facilities.

How many days per week?

You will be in class for approximately 2 days per week, but will need to set aside roughly the same amount of time again to complete weekly tasks and assignments, and practice what you learn in class.

What will I study?

During the 1st year of the course, students develop skills and ability in creative music production, studio techniques, recording and programming, musicianship and creative composition, and develop an understanding of the music industry and the social and cultural environment in which it operates.

During the 2nd year, students turn their attention more firmly toward the music industry, focussing on business planning and development, finance skills and the music industry as a whole, whilst continuing to develop their music production skills. Students will be introduced to the professional contexts of the music industry and particularly the imperatives of the small scale business entrepreneur. Students are required to create and pilot their own small business idea and create a viable business plan.

How will I learn and be assessed?

Students follow an intensely practical approach to learning and are required to complete a high level of creative music output throughout the course. Students follow a varied programme of practical and theoretical tasks and are encouraged to try out what they have learnt in a practical, hands-on way, reflecting on more theoretical learning pro-actively. Students are assessed in a variety of ways; including recordings, work related projects, logbooks, written work, self evaluations and verbal presentations. There are no exams.

What can I do once I have completed the course?

The course is primarily designed to provide students with a bank of skills and knowledge necessary to create their own role within the music industry, setting up their own business for example. However, should students wish to gain employment within the existing music industry they will be equally well equipped to do so. Students will be able to enter a wide field of career areas, including commercial music production and music for media to name but a few.

Are there any opportunities for further study?

Students can take the full foundation degree or opt to do a one year Certificate of Higher Education. After completing the Foundation degree, students will be able to apply to level 6 of the BA (Hons) Commercial Music course at the University of Westminster should they wish to continue their studies.

What are the entry requirements?

This course is designed to welcome people from all current music backgrounds and does not require formal qualifications for entry. Previous practical experience of Music/Music Production is essential. A study support programme is available for those students who need it.
