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!

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
