'A lovely encouraging atmosphere and brilliant teaching!'
Welcome to Oxenfoord...
Join us this summer as we build on 33 years of coaching, workshops and masterclasses with some of the leading tutors in their field. Taking place between Sun 27th July - Sun 3rd August we offer an inspiring setting to make new friends, meet old ones and share music through performance on the outskirts of Scotland's capital. Below is a short film about my work on the course which was filmed by the Edinburgh International Festival a few years ago:
We're delighted to welcome back Yvonne Kenny for the Public Masterclass with Robin Bowman taking French Song and Janis Kelly, Linda Ormiston and Susanna Stranders producing Opera Scenes. I'll be continuing classes in Song repertoire, accompaniment and introducing a new class called Song Cycle. Our expert tutors offer a wide variety of classes and a new class list for 2014 will be added later in the year. In the meantime browse this website for lots of information about Oxenfoord 2013 and look us up on Facebook for the latest updates.
In addition to part-funded course fees for suitable applicants this year, the Sam Hutchings Pianist Prize will again be awarded to a young accompanist of outstanding ability. It includes a place on the course with accommodation, a £250 bursary and an opportunity to work with tutors and singers during the week. All bursary requests should be sent with your application form and applications for the Sam Hutchings Pianist Prize are welcome.
With new classes for 2014, Loretto's suite of all-Steinway pianos and our popular series of student concerts we're expecting another rewarding year with familiar friends and new faces. Do let us know if you have any questions, we'd love to hear from you.
