Stowe School in Buckinghamshire is the exciting 2019 destination for the Summer School for Pianists, which has, over its 40 year history, travelled from London to the West Midlands, via York and Hereford. A National Trust site, with fabulous gardens landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown, Stowe House features the magnificent State Music Room for masterclasses, and for our final 3-course gala dinner, while other meals will be in the State Dining Room. Further masterclasses, presentations and recitals will be held in the Music School and the Ugland Auditorium.
Stowe is an All Steinway school, so we have a fleet of fine pianos at our disposal in numerous practice rooms. Five excellent tutors will be hosting masterclasses and performing for us in recitals, while a variety of other musical options such as accompaniment class, choir, sight-reading class, piano technique discussion and information on music software will be on offer.
Comfortable, ensuite accommodation in modern boarding houses with lifts, sitting rooms and kitchens will give participants the opportunity to relax, recharge and socialise. With superb grounds to explore, featuring follies, temples and architectural treasures, a week at the Stowe Summer School for Pianists will be a musical highlight of the year.
