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…
