RCS Percussion online summer school (ages 12-17)


The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s five-day online summer school is an intensive hands-on opportunity for young people who want to strengthen their technical, musical and performance skills. The course is led by expert tutor Calum Huggan from Scotland’s national conservatoire, and attracts young musicians from all over the world.

It is aimed at 12 – 17 year olds who are playing at Grade 4 and above and wish to continue their creative learning at home. This course will be delivered on MS Teams and Zoom.

It is a fast-paced, exciting and inspiring week culminating in a percussion extravaganza on the final afternoon which showcases the talents and potential of each individual. It offers technique and performance classes, ensemble coaching and a 30 minute one-to-one lesson with Calum.

By the end of the week you will have:

  • A greater understanding about the importance of percussion in a variety of contexts.
  • Increased confidence in performance and ensemble settings.
  • Developed technically across a range of percussion disciplines.
  • Experienced a community ethos and connected with like-minded individuals.

The Percussion summer school is a great opportunity for young percussionists to learn new techniques and repertoire in a safe and encouraging environment. You don’t need to have access to a wide variety of percussion instruments at home – the course is tailored to accommodate unconventional instrumentation that you can create from household items.
