About Kent Music Summer School
The Summer School (known as ‘KMSS’ for short) has welcomed thousands of young people since 1947, enabling all students to join in concentrated ensemble playing and singing. All of our courses are led by leading professional musicians who work at the highest level throughout the year as performers and educators.
Set in 240 acres of beautiful grounds in the heart of Kent, Benenden School has excellent facilities, including a purpose-built theatre, lecture theatre and a new state of the art concert hall is also being built. These amenities have contributed to the Summer School being one of the most popular and successful on offer in the country, allowing students to flourish in an unrivalled setting.
