How to Apply

The application deadline is 15 May 2022. Spaces are limited – early application is highly recommended.

To apply for a place, please send us the application form and a recording of your playing.


Please note that the course may become full before the application deadline – please apply as early as you can.

You can email a short recording of your playing (a recording made on a smartphone is sufficient) or a link to a sound or video recording (YouTube or similar)

Please do not send any payment at this stage.


There are places for 11 students, who will be selected by recording. If Hannah Roberts or Leandro Silvera know your playing, it is possible to apply without a recording – please email us.


Students selected to participate will be required to send the full course fee within two weeks of being accepted to confirm their place.

Please note that payment of the course fee confirms that you will be attending the course, and therefore it is non-refundable, unless your place can be filled with another student.


We have a very small bursary fund. Please note that the value of these is very limited; we encourage students to search for additional sources of funding if they need financial help to attend the course. These bursaries should be seen as some extra help towards the fees – please don’t rely on a bursary when deciding whether to apply for the course.

Selection to the course will not be affected by application for a bursary.

You can apply for a bursary here.
