More about the course

Enjoy creative music-making this holiday!

Our Young Musicians’ Holiday Course is for children aged 7 to 10 with an interest in music - it’s suitable for absolute beginners, those who have already started learning an instrument, and those who have been learning for several years.

“My daughter absolutely LOVED every day! She said she wishes she could go everyday until she is 100 years old. The activities and pacing of the day sounded perfect too. It was such a joy to be able to watch all the children learnt on Friday!” - NATALIE

The course is packed with engaging and fun activities, with plenty of variety - for example drumming, singing or body percussion sessions, creating and composing music together, making instruments, imagination and movement activities and listening. 

Children will enjoy creative music and games in Mycenae Gardens (weather permitting!), prepare music and perform to each other and to the whole group. It's a great way to make new friends and explore music-making!

During the course the children will develop projects and build skills, working towards something special to share with family and friends at the end of the course. 

The course is led by professional musicians and music education experts, and balances enriching musical learning experiences with down-time and fun for the holiday season.
