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. 

Wind Band Course

Thursday 09 July – Tuesday 14 July 2020

During this course woodwind, brass and percussion players will experience playing alongside others in a large ensemble under the expert guidance of wind band professionals.

During sectional and full rehearsals, players are introduced to a broad range of music including arrangements of well-known pieces and more traditional wind band repertoire. They have the opportunity to develop their technique and enhance their ensemble playing skills in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.

All course members come together for vocal sessions; wind band and vocal items will be shared with family and friends at 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 Tuesday 14 July.

Age: 8 to 19 years old

Level: Grades 2-8 or equivalent

Fee: £384 – Financial assistance is available upon meeting criteria. Visit the Financial Assistance page for more information.
