If cello and the desire to play it is an important part of your life
The Easter course will be held at St Edward’s School, Oxford.
For the course during Easter 2023 we are moving to the new surroundings of St Edward’s School, Oxford. The school offers everything we need; state of the art music facilities, comfortable boarding houses (single) rooms, excellent food, sports facilities and is near to the centre of Oxford; just a 10 minute drive from the station.
All the familiar opportunities will carry on; a cello lesson every day with international standard teachers, listening to masterclasses, rehearsal time with high class pianists, performance platforms, practice spaces and time at the end of the day for a vivid social life and relaxation. I am sure you will enjoy this facility and have a great, full-on ‘cello week’; the place may have changed but the ethos of the course stays the same! Come to Oxford for an inspiring week in a hard-working but uncompetitive, supportive environment. Come and take a great leap forward on your cello journey!
I look forward very much to welcoming you to the International Cello Gathering course, Easter 2023 at St Edward’s, Oxford.

I feel like I have grown and improved so much within the week. All the teachers have given me great advice which I can continue to use to help improve my playing. In between the lessons there was plenty of time to practice and to put into place what I had learnt. As well as great teachers, having the time with an accompanist and a performance opportunity was hugely beneficial, especially as I have my final recital coming up.
