International Wind, Brass and Percussion Easter Music School

Sunday 7th - Thursday 11th April 2024

Our world-class tutors will nurture young musicians (aged 8-12) to develop their skills and confidence by exploring a range of exciting musical styles.

This course is suitable for complete beginners up to grade 3 – come and expand your musical knowledge and try lots of different instruments in a beautiful setting. 

Musical Opportunities

During the week, you will receive workshops on your instrument as well as opportunities to try new ones. We also have a fun daily choir session. 

Whilst we encourage everyone to take part in all activities, we will not force anyone to participate if they don’t want to do so for whatever reason.  However, we hope our friendly and accepting community will lead all musicians to take part, even if it is slightly outside of their normal comfort zone!

Meet Our World-Class Staff

Course tutors will generally be either full- or part-time teaching staff of Wells Cathedral School, a government-recognised specialist music school that is known for its quality teaching and musical opportunities for pre-professional musicians. However, should our staff be unavailable for our holiday music courses, we will appoint music teachers of a comparable calibre to teach courses.


The course costs £605 boarding and £475 for day pupils. The course includes meals (lunch and dinner for day).

A deposit of 25% of the course fee is required to reserve your place, with the balance due on 24th February 2024. Bookings made after the 24th February 2024 must be accompanied by the full fee for the course. Deposits are non-refundable.


If you book one of our Holiday Music Schools 2024, you are eligible for a £50 discount off the cost of each additional Holiday Music School 2024 course you book. This can be applied across siblings or for one child who takes part in more than one course in 2024. Please use the discount code “HOLIDAYMUSIC50” on your application form for each additional course you book (the full price will be required for the first booked course).
