"THE BEST MONTH OF MY LIFE"
The statement we hear over and over, summer after summer. Read what our graduates say:
The Summer Programme exceeded my expectation in every way. Short three and a half weeks but lifelong impact...musically, interpersonally and personally!
Absolutely life changing experience. An extremely intense yet rewarding program where you're writing and recording with live musicians from the moment you land!
I must admit that before the program I had many fears because I wasn't writing music at the time, but now I am so happy that I decided to participate - I feel inspired and driven to write music again. I learned so much as it was an intensive hands-on experience, and what a feeling to hear your music being played by live musicians (and orchestra!) during the four recording sessions - all this happened in less than one month! The people were amazing, such a positive atmosphere, so much support and everyone was enjoying each other’s music. It's the best musical adventure I've had so far.
