Welcome to Oxenfoord...

Join us this summer as we build on 33 years of coaching, workshops and masterclasses on the outskirts of Scotland's capital. With new classes and tutors for 2014 we offer an inspiring setting for singers and accompanists to make new friends, meet old ones and share music through performance.

This year we're delighted to welcome Marie McLaughlin as our Masterclass guest tutor, with Robin Bowman taking French Song and Janis Kelly, Linda Ormiston and Susanna Stranders producing Opera Scenes. I'll be offering classes in Song Repertoire & Accompaniment and will be introducing a new Song Cycle class for 2014. Our expert tutors have also introduced a number of new classes with Simon Over making a welcome return and Matteo Dalle Fratte joining us for the first time. See Our tutors for updated biographies, class lists and class descriptions.

Now in its second year The Sam Hutchings Pianist Prize will be awarded to a young accompanist of outstanding ability. This includes a place on the course with accommodation, a £250 bursary and an opportunity to work with tutors and student singers during the week. We'll continue to offer part-funded course fees in 2014 and all bursary requests (including applications for the Sam Hutchings Pianist Prize) should be sent via a bursary letter with your application form.

With new classes for 2014, Loretto's suite of All-Steinway pianos and many opportunities for staff and students to perform together, we're expecting yet another rewarding year. Do let us know if you have any questions, we'd love to hear from you.
