ESTA SUMMER SCHOOL August 11-16 2019

We have an amazing line up for this year’s summer school! It’s a US-themed week which includes Joanne May and Joanne Erwin taking our daily basics sessions, both of whom are world renowned Paul Rolland exponents, plus daily sessions from incredible American violinist Mark O’Connor

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 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.

2019 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.

The Summer School is residential 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!

Here you can book the entire week. If you just want individual days then please email sheila@estastrings.org.uk.  Please be aware that the daily rate does not include accommodation. This is an extra charge of £45 per night. (Accommodation is included in the whole week’s fee.)
