Instrumental Learning and Choir School

Entry to St Mary’s Music School is based on musical ability or potential ability and pupils are selected after an audition process. Informal auditions are encouraged before formal application is made as these are a useful indicator of whether a child or young person is likely to succeed and if the school itself will be the right environment for them.

Saturday Music Classes

There is no audition process for Saturday Music Classes: we welcome everyone on a first come first served basis from the age of 4 to 14, and the programme is aimed at beginner levels plus.

Please see the Saturday Music Classes section for further information on classes and applications.

Summer Schools

The school is running a residential piano course, open to enthusiastic pianists age 13-19 who are at Grade 6 and above, in August 2019. Led by an experienced team of St Mary’s Music School staff, this intensive course includes one-to-one teaching, workshops, performance classes, duo work, yoga and Alexander Technique.
