We have an amazing line up for this year’s Summer School. Come and join us for a truly inspirational week of learning, recharging your batteries, challenging yourself and meeting some fantastic people – all at a great venue too!
Professional development lies at the heart of the European String Teachers Association (ESTA) and each year, the Summer School draws together a world-class faculty of teacher-presenters to share experiences and pedagogic insights into teaching and playing string instruments.
2018 promises an inspiring series of workshops, lectures, demonstrations and concerts. Participants range from young professionals to semi-retired players, giving a unique mix of experiences and opportunity for sharing of ideas and knowledge. Informal chamber music groups spring up every evening around suppertime and after the concerts.
The programme retains its ever popular Basics (String Pedagogy) classes which take an in-depth view of how we play and teach string instruments. Every year, these classes take on their own special life as the presenter and participants change and the class evolves to suit everyone’s interests and needs.
This is a residential Summer School at Chichester University. If you’re local, please feel free to commute but if you can, do immerse yourself in the whole experience. It’s amazing what conversations get started at breakfast!
