What is it that Attracts the Many Regular Students and Fresh Visitors Each Year

Canford Summer School of Music is well into its second half century and our commitment has never been stronger, our programming never wider and our reputation never higher.

What is it that attracts the many regular students and fresh visitors each year from all corners of the world? Everyone will give you a different answer. Some will say the coaching of the highest standard (but given in a sympathetic style where individuals of differing abilities find their own levels, developing their talents and enthusiasm at their own pace).

Others will say the range of courses, whether as a soloist, in groups, choirs, orchestras or simply expanding the enjoyment and understanding of music. Maybe it is the atmosphere where life-long friendships form and grow year by year; or perhaps it is the setting itself, in the centre of the pretty market town of Sherborne.

Of course, our particular character comes from all of these things and more….that special blend of the professional with the informal, of planning and spontaneity, of tradition with innovation. We understand that people’s needs and tastes change (see our new course, the Can’t Read Music Choir) and that we must keep pace with them. But we never lose sight of the traditional values of friendliness, efficiency and excellence of value which have given the summer school its unsurpassed international reputation.

Whatever your age, whether you want to get away from things, or get into the middle of them, we are sure you will find Canford at Sherborne the ideal place for combining the maximum enjoyment of committed music-making with a very special holiday – see you there! Discover more……

Amber Mark’s New Single Heatwave Released via Interscope/Virgin EMI

Summer might be coming to its close, but it lives forever on Amber Mark’s new single Heatwave released via Interscope/Virgin EMI.

It is the first solo song to follow up her debut EP 3:33am which she dropped in May earlier this year. The German American singer who writes and produces all of her own music gives us a summer banger that just makes you want to go out and have a good time.

The track has a bongo-heavy, house-inspired colorful production with a catchy piano line that paints a picture of dancing under the blazing sun which is exactly what inspired the 23-year-old to write the tune: “Heatwave is different to anything I’ve written before. It just completely has that feel of summer for me. I wrote it just as it was getting hot here in NYC and we’d just came out of the longest Winter… Play it loud.”

Genre-bending Amber Mark is set to tour North America in fall so be sure to grab some tickets if you’re around. For now, enjoy Heatwave and the last joys of summer below.

We Were All Ready to Run With it Until Charles Clarke Announced That He’s Ordered a Complete Review of Their Policy


I had a chat with Lyndon about resurrecting our poster campaign for the reclassification of cannabis. We were all ready to run with it until Charles Clarke announced that he’s ordered a complete review of their policy.

I argued that we could still use them, but Lyndon vetoed that. A shame really as I think they were quite good. Lyndon’s always had a problem with our cannabis policy.

He says we’re open to attack because Labour’s policy is popular with the voters and saves loads of police time. I don’t think the people who smoke this stuff will be bothered to vote anyway, but he simply pointed to the ‘hash cake’ granny standing against Peter Hain.

Anyway, can’t stop now – I’m off to Kent for an Eduction photo-op.
