Bursaries

All course fees are subsidised by our fundraising activities and fees are further reduced for students. Some bursary funding is available: please enquire when applying for courses. In addition to the general full and part bursaries we offer, we have two specific bursary schemes:

Co-Principal Strings Student Bursary scheme

  • If you are currently studying full-time at a UK conservatoire and would appreciate the opportunity to work intensively on large-scale symphonic repertoire with professional conductors, without the pressure of public performance, at the same time as benefiting directly from the experience of our professional string principals, why not apply for the Co-Principal Strings Student bursary scheme? Successful applicants will be offered a bursary-funded place on one of our London weekend courses as co-principal first or second violin, viola, cello or double bass. A modest contribution to travel costs is available to participants studying outside London.
  • To apply, please email admin@rehearsal-orchestra.org with your CV.  

Gillian Halse Bursary Fund

  • Harold Taylor, partner of Gillian Halse Noel who co-founded the Rehearsal Orchestra in 1957, very kindly gave a legacy in his will in Gill’s memory to fund student bursaries for our annual Edinburgh rehearsal week.

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!

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.
  • We expect our students to work and play with energy, creativity and enthusiasm.​

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.
