Led by GMS director Bethan Scolding MMus and members of our Monday Music tutor team, we will be spending three days making music, playing in ensembles, singing in a choir, having taster lessons in different instruments and working on creative musical projects. The course is suitable for children aged 6 to 16 at any level from absolute beginner to grade 5 and above, with different pathways depending on instrument and level.

Beginners pathway

Choir, musicianship and ensembles, creative projects, and taster instrument lessons with strings, wind and piano.

Grades 1-3 pathway

Includes choir, orchestra, theory & composition, and creative projects.

Grades 4, 5+ pathway

Includes choir, theory & composition, orchestra, and creative projects.

The Summer Course draws on Greenwich Music School’s weekly term-time Monday Music programme at Charlton House, with creative and practical sessions giving learners the tools and confidence to make progress and enjoy making music together. 

Pathways will include a mixture of sessions including choir, musicianship or theory & composition, ensemble or orchestra, and creative projects including making a film soundtrack, jazz band and minimalism composition. Beginners will have the opportunity to try out different instruments, and optional instrument taster lessons will be available at the end of each day.

The course ends on Wednesday with a concert at 3pm for family and friends.
