This summer school is for flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon players aged 13 to 17, Grade 7 and above (ABRSM or Trinity or equivalent) who would like to improve their technique and playing ability.

The programme

The course is residential and includes: 

  • Individual tuition
  • Coaching
  • Chamber music
  • Performance opportunities
  • Concerts
  • Workshops
  • Alexander Technique

Information for parents

Edinburgh is a Unesco World Heritage site and one of the world’s most beautiful cities. As well as stunning architecture to admire, there are excellent shops, restaurants and visitor attractions.

The city also makes an excellent base to explore other areas of Scotland including the Highlands and Islands, so while your child focuses on developing their instrumental techniques you can happily spend a few days sightseeing. We hope you will join us for a concert on the last day of the course.
