Sherborne Summer School of Music 2020
This website describes the courses that were on offer in both 2020 and 2021 prior to the schools being cancelled.
This is to give you an idea of the range of courses, the expertise of our tutors and the standard of performance materials.
A course for accompanists of all standards dealing with all aspects of piano accompaniment from sight-reading to performance on the concert platform. A limited number of places will be available for instrumentalists wishing to play the set repertoire - they are also encouraged to bring works of their own choice.
The following pieces will be studied in detail with a group of resident instrumentalists. Student pianists will, in addition, have the opportunity to work with other instrumentalists and singers in the school. At least two works should be prepared from the list but familiarity with as many as possible is desirable.
