About Kent Music Summer School 2016
Kent Music Summer School (KMSS) is a series of residential music courses for young musicians, held each July at the beautiful Benenden School near Cranbrook, Kent.
Their purpose is to give students aged between 8 – 19 the opportunity to join in concentrated ensemble playing and singing, away from the distractions of home and school. Friendships develop between those with similar musical interests and for many the Summer School has become an annual event not to be missed.
Anyone, regardless of where they live or are educated, can apply for a place. Over 1000 young people are able to develop their musical abilities during the courses through playing in wind bands, symphony orchestras, string orchestras, jazz groups and recorder ensembles.
On all the courses the emphasis is very much on enjoyment. These courses will be helpful to a wide range of musicians and those preparing for GCSE and A level Music will find it a particularly useful supplement to their studies.
Singing is fundamental and youngsters with or without experience will be welcomed on our choral courses. Musicianship is also extended by singing in the course chorus during the six-day instrumental courses.
These courses allow musicianship to flourish in an unrivalled atmosphere of encouragement, expertise and enjoyment.
