Summer School with a difference

What makes us so different is the sheer range and quality of musical experiences offered and the phenomenal commitment, expertise and generosity that can only come from musicians who are at the top of their profession. If you are looking for a summer school that is regularly described by participants as inspirational, life enhancing and confidence boosting, then look no further. The CoMA Allcomers Summer School has a proven track record of changing lives – for the better! An eclectic mix of concerts, workshops and orchestral options offers musicians of varying skills and interests a multitude of new musical experiences, as participants and audiences.

Our venue at High Melton is set on a scarp overlooking the Deane Valley, and offers the use of a Saxon Church a well as rehearsal spaces, a theatre and practice rooms.

Who do we cater for?

We provide for all musicians, be they composers, singers and/or instrumentalists. Most sessions accommodate a wide range of abilities – late starters as well as very experienced musicians and music teachers. Some options require no previous experience. Others are better suited to the ambitious and well-practiced.

Teachers who have attended previously have received financial support from their schools as part of their in-service training in recognition of the immense benefit they gain from summer school with its many examples of new music and practice.
