We are sorry to announce that, due to the COVID 19 pandemic and the continuation of social distancing measures we have made the extremely difficult and very sad decision to cancel Kent Music Summer School at Benenden School this year including all County Group courses due to take place in July. 

 For answers to queries about refunds, as well as our organisational response to the COVID 19 pandemic, please visit our COVID 19 page here: https://www.kent-music.com/news/kent-music-and-covid-19-coronavirus/ 

 Please keep making music and we look forward to welcoming you to our activities in the future. 

Summer Strings Course

Wednesday 22 July – Friday 24 July 2020

This course focuses on the further development of ensemble playing skills in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Participants will be placed in one of two string orchestras depending on their experience and ability. Players will benefit from sectional and full rehearsals which will improve their overall technique and enhance their musical development and understanding. Course members will also come together to form a choir and they will share string orchestra and vocal items with family and friends during the end of course performance.

All of our staff who work with children and young people have a current enhanced disclosure through the Disclosure & Barring Service and we run a programme of regular child protection training for our teachers.

Free end of course performance for family and friends on Friday 24 July.

Age: 8 to 19 years old

Level: Grades 1-5

Fee: £192 – Financial assistance is available upon meeting criteria. Visit the Financial Assistance page for more information.
