The Working Party for the Summer School is preparing for this year’s Summer School to take place as planned, from Friday 20th to Friday 27th August.
We encourage you to book your places now – as an added incentive, we’ve discounted our prices across the board. The £20 ‘Early Bird Discount’ will also still apply, for any booking we receive on or before 31st March. Booking early will help you and our tutors to prepare.
We understand that some prospective students may be experiencing financial difficulties, and we do have a number of scholarships, half-scholarships and bursaries on offer. Please contact us for more details (email below).
Our ability to hold the Summer School will continue to be dependent upon Covid-19 restrictions and regulations. In the event that this year’s Summer School cannot take place, all deposits will be refunded.
For more information and to request an application form, please email email@example.com.
In the meantime, we encourage you to join the Summer School Mailing List and enjoy a monthly delve into the lives and experiences of our Summer School tutors. Click on the link to join: Mailing List and if you know of anyone who might be interested, please encourage them to join too.
Summer School Working Party
A word on safety . . .
The Summer School Working Party members are aware that some potential students may be concerned about Covid-19 safety at this year's Summer School, and this is making them hesitant to book their places.
We are students and tutors ourselves, and, like you, we want to feel confident that everything is being done to ensure our health and wellbeing, when we take part in August. This is why we're working closely with representatives from the venue, Ingestre Hall: because we want to feel safe at the Summer School too.
We can't say for certain at this stage what measures will be taken, but we will keep students fully informed as we go.
If you're reading this and feeling hesitant yourself, please do consider that booking now will help to secure the accommodation of your choice and will enable your tutors to give you what you need to prepare for the workshops. And if you change your mind and decide you don't want to attend the 2021 Summer School, your deposit will be refunded, no questions asked!
So, you have everything to gain by booking now!
From Jane, Rob, Isla and Maria.
We welcome you to the 74th WMA Summer School of Music, which offers a unique mix of courses for singers, instrumentalists and composers alike.
Founded by members of the Workers' Music Association and inspired by its ideals and principles, the Summer School aims to bring together musicians and music lovers from all walks of life and all levels of achievement, to share and develop their musical interests and to discover and learn new ones.
