Saturday 5th (Wednesday 9th for Choral Courses) to Saturday 12th August 2022 at Keele University
SfP Summer School returns to Keele in 2023. Ranging from the popular singers’ and choral courses, through Foundation and Intermediate choral conducting levels to the demands of the Advanced conducting course, there is something for every choral enthusiast at Summer School. The sociable atmosphere of the week generates an extremely supportive learning environment, which in turn leads to a high level of achievement and enjoyment with many participants returning again and again.

SfP is able to offer a number of bursaries (to the value of £400) towards the cost of our conducting courses courtesy of the John Lewis Partnership, PracticePal and other generous benefactors. These bursaries are available to teachers and vocal leaders working with primary school children (priority will be given to teachers working with disadvantaged children) and also to those aged 16-26 considering a career in this area. To apply, first check the bursary criteria on our website and then indicate your request when applying for the course. You can apply here before booking your place.
Please note, you can either pay in full upfront, pay by invoice, or pay in three equal instalments up to June 15th (taken monthly). You can make this choice at checkout. If you choose to pay in instalments, you will be taken to our ‘Paythen’ payment page, who manage SfP payment plans. After June 15th the full fee must be paid. Withdrawals within 28 days of the start of the course will incur a fee of up to 50% of the total cost, and withdrawals within two weeks of the start of the course will be liable to pay the full amount, so participants are encouraged to take out holiday insurance in case of an unforeseen cancellation.
