Participation and Fees
The Academy program involves six Sundays per term held fortnightly at the Stapleford Granary. Each term ends with a Recital & Masterclass Day. The Recital & Masterclass Days are designed to give students ongoing performance opportunities, both as soloists and as chamber musicians, as well as to provide a relaxed setting for students and coaches to be part of a musical community.
Student participation requires playing in a chamber music ensemble throughout the year, as well as in the Recital & Masterclass Days. During their chamber music rehearsals, ensembles will prepare a work to perform at the Recital & Masterclass Day. Students are expected to participate in masterclasses, and are further encouraged to perform as soloists in the recital.
The Academy is for advanced pianists and string players of level grade 8 + and under 21 years of age. If you are interested in joining the Academy please click here to contact us.
The fee for the spring term 2021 will be £289. We are adjusting fees as we move forward, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any queries about our fees.
