RNCM Young Strings Summer School

RNCM Young Strings Summer School applications are now closed for 2023. Applications will reopen next year.

RNCM Young Strings Summer School gives string players between 6 -13 years a fantastic opportunity to develop their musical, creative and performance skills in a fun and friendly environment.

Daily activities are led by a team of experienced RNCM tutors and include string orchestra, chamber music, Dalcroze Eurhythmics, choir and some creative activities.

How are the children taught?

All of the summer school staff are highly qualified and experienced specialists who are friendly, fun and approachable.

A child concentrates on his sheet music as he plays the violin in a Junior RNCM string orchestra.

The children are grouped according to age and experience and take part in large ensembles, chamber groups, singing, movement and improvisation/ composition activities. There are plenty of different activities throughout the day, and ample opportunities to enjoy break times outside in the garden at this lovely quiet school. The week culminates in a concert performance.
