Summer Courses

Summer Course 2018 Bookings are now being taken!

This year’s Summer Courses are taking place from Monday 30th July to Friday 3rd August at Marling School in Stroud.
There  are 4 courses running concurrently, with something to suit everyone.
For players grade 1 to 4 we have our Junior Course.
For those above this in standard we have the Senior Course, aimed at grades 4 to 8+.
If you like a bit of jazz we have a jazz course for players of approx grade 3 upwards.
If you’re a string player who is below grade 1 we have our String Starter Course.
Mornings and late afternoons are spent working on a huge variety of music, led by our friendly professional tutors.
Early afternoons, after lunch, we have a whole range of non-musical fun activities to entertain you.
So for a fantastic week of music making in a fun and friendly atmosphere come and join us for one of our wonderful courses!
A few quotes from our students last year:
‘I loved it!’
‘The staff were so friendly, it was so much fun!’
‘I can’t wait til next year!’

We are very fortunate to have the services of Gloucestershire Minibus Scheme working with us on our Summer courses, transporting children to and from Marling each day. Pick up points are in Cirencester, Wotton, Gloucester and Cheltenham, depending on demand. We will keep you informed if any of the services are NOT looking viable – this is entirely at the discretion of the GMS. We’re pleased to hear that the Minibus Scheme have kept the same costs as 2017:
(prices per day, ie round trip)
£7 for the first child
£6 for the first sibling
£5 for the second sibling
etc etc.
Please indicate on the application form which minibus service you require. Alternatively, if you wish to add your child onto the service at any point please do contact us via the website.
