Our popular course for talented young singers based in the West Midlands is back! Led by experienced teachers and choir leaders, this non-residential summer school – which runs over five days in the school holidays – helps to develop choral and musicianship skills through a wide range of repertoire, fun singing games and musical activities.
The course is open to any child aged 9-13 years. Music sight-reading ability is not essential, but pupils should have some experience of singing in a choir or be learning to play an instrument.
Children can attend as a group with their teacher or as individuals; rest assured that plenty of staff will be on hand to supervise those who attend without an adult. There is no cost for accompanying teachers.
