Program Overview

Program Description:
Welcome to the 2nd International Summer Music School UK organised by Encore Music Projects. We are delighted that the course will again take place in the beautiful and historic setting of Wells Cathedral School, internationally renowned for attracting many of the most gifted young musicians worldwide to study at its prestigious Specialist Music School. We invite students, children and young adults, from all around the world to come and develop their musical talents in a safe and stimulating environment, creating music and friendships. We aim to inspire our students with tuition and guidance of the highest calibre, in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. We offer our students the fantastic opportunity to listen to and perform with our team of world-class performers and teachers, set in a stunning location. We provide our students with outstanding facilities for making music as well as enjoying comfortable living accommodation and high-quality food. We expect our students to work and play with energy, creativity and enthusiasm.

The course is for piano, strings, composition and voice, and is especially designed for intermediate and advanced students. Expert tuition and guidance will focus on the development of technique, musical styles and interpretation, stage performance and presentation, competition and audition preparation. There will be opportunities to explore new as well as current repertoire. The emphasis will be on making music together, and on top of a daily one-to-one lesson, chamber music, piano/vocal masterclasses/workshops, every student (instrument appropriate) will participate in the string orchestra and community choir. Theory tuition will also available. In the evenings there will be several teacher concerts as well as the chance to get together for informal chamber music making. There will be time for recreation, including free use of the school’s covered swimming pool, organised activities and games, and a free day to explore the fabulous sights around Wells. For those parents who may be considering sending their children to Wells Cathedral School for their education, the course offers a unique chance to experience the atmosphere of the school. Encore Music Projects very much looks forward to welcoming our students to Wells in the summer 2015, for a memorable musical experience.

I would like to thank you immensely for an excellent summer program, it was of such high quality that time and money spent was well WORTH. Vikram’s teacher in HK is amazed at his achievement in just 10 days of the program. Last but not the least I learnt reading music notes during community choir. It’s an experience in itself. The program in short is superb in many ways, developed music and social skills while help overcome stage fear. Sridevi Krishna Mother of Vikram Krishna, Hong-Kong can say that the experience at your first and our first course exceeded our expectations and we will be saving the date for the 20th July to the 1st August 2015. What you are offering convinced me from 7000 kilometres away, particularly since I did not have the benefit of a personal reference/recommendation. My observation has been that the teaching at the individual level was excellent. Your teachers although professionals at a high level were nurturing and kind. They displayed tremendous patience and skill in handling their students and gave no hesitation in imparting technique. The idea behind the teachers concerts, communal choir, eating together in the dining hall and the Cheddar Gorge day out created for a whereby the students, teachers and parents could all socialise at a the same level fostering relationships in a relaxed and fun atmosphere and simultaneously providing the students with inspiration and support. This worked very well! Olena you were wonderful from the initial contact via email in terms of suggestions on how to structure my daughter’s program, to the warm reception on arrival and the kindness, patience and thoughtfulness provided throughout the camp. On behalf of my entire family we extend our heartfelt congratulations and gratitude. Salma Rahaman-Ramatally Mother of Aliyah Ramtally, Trinidad & Tobago
