Music Summer Schools 2022

Our woodwind, piano and strings summer schools are an opportunity for young musicians to develop their skills in an atmosphere that is fun and supportive.

Taught by the faculty of St Mary's Music School, and often featuring guest tutors from professional orchestras and ensembles, each course is residential and takes place at our beautiful home, Coates Hall, in the heart of Edinburgh. 

As well as intensive music-making there will of course be the opportunity to explore our magical city.

Woodwind - 31st July to 5th August

“I would definitely recommend this course to other people because it helps you grow as a musician, not just a pianist, because you collaborate with others, you improve your posture, you improve basically everything.” 


 “I really enjoyed having lessons because you didn't feel intimidated or scared to ask questions about things. I felt very open in being able to just play and not be worried about making mistakes. The teachers were very open about things and really encouraged you.”
