Prestigious Oxford Flute Summer School gets underway
A milestone in the development of many a fine musician, the prestigious annual Oxford Flute Summer School gets underway tomorrow (Tuesday 19th June) and runs until Sunday (24th June).
Originally co-founded by flautist and teacher Janet Way and our own flute-tooting boss Clive Conway in 1986, the Summer School enjoys a reputation for international success, meticulous organisation, imaginative planning and world-class teaching.
More than 30 years after its debut, it continues to provide a platform on which teachers and performers can exchange ideas, hone skills and learn life and career changing musical techniques.
It offers the opportunity to spend a week playing flute every day while being looked after by the staff at Radley College in the beautiful rolling Oxfordshire countryside. As previous participants can testify it’s amazing how much you can learn in one week in the friendly and supportive atmosphere or our summer school!
It’s ideal for flautists who want to treat themselves to a ‘working holiday’ where you play your flute every day, with a friendly group of like-minded people from around the world.
The support and encouragement on offer suits players of all levels. Perhaps you find it difficult to practise every day without the constraints of everyday life getting in the way.
Or you maybe you want to re-discover your talents with an immersive flute experience. The Oxford Flute Summer School has lessons and classes to suit everyone, from keen amateur to young professional players. It takes care of everything including accommodation and meals, leaving the musicians to learn, play, and meet other flute players from many parts of the world, both amateur and professional.
There’s expert tuition and advice from world class flautists with direct access an incredible team of flute players, including Kate Hill Professor at the Royal Academy of Music, Professor Robert Winn from Cologne Musikhochschule, Adam Walker of the London Symphony Orchestra, and Peter Verhoyen, piccolo with the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra.
