Flutewise at Handcross Park
to 9 Apr

Flutewise at Handcross Park

I am delighted to announce a new venue for our residential courses - Handcross Park School, Handcross, Haywards Heath. I’ve been in countless schools, but I think I can happily say this is the loveliest I’ve ever come across! If you come to our course you can experience this wonderful environment with inspirational flute staff, you will have a great time and your flute playing skills will be given a huge boost. We will be running our Easter course here from 6 to 9 April 2020.

Our residential courses have been running for 30 years in a number of venues over the UK. This year we are holding our Easter course at Handcross Park School. It is a wonderful venue, very beautiful and with the advantage of us being ‘under one roof’ for our workshops, eating and sleeping. It is much like Hogwarts with an ultra modern dining room where I have been told we will enjoy scrumptious food.

The course is carefully designed with the individual in mind with the aim of improving performance skills. It is suitable for all keen flute players, whatever their standard of playing from the age of 8 years upwards (it is suggested that people under 10 attend a Flutewise day event before attending a residential course). People over 16 can apply for our Apprentice Scheme course. 

Reserve your place today!

Details of staff on this course will rereleased soon, but parents can rest assured we have a very high staff to pupil ratio and all staff are experienced, trained and carefully vetted and are extremely inspirational. We have residential house staff and visiting day staff.
