Bass Club Summer School
Sun 21 - Sat 27 August 2016 at the Yehudi Menuhin School, Surrey
Now in its 30th year, Bass Club has given students the specialist tuition they need to reach and go beyond their ambitions. Courses are tailored to the individual's needs and the atmosphere is uniquely supportive.
Whether you are an advanced player taking professional auditions or a young player going on your first specialist course these amazing possibilities are available to you. The repertoire, teaching and communication styles have been developed over many years.
This year we are able to return to the intimate and inspiring surroundings of the Yehudi Menuhin School, set in a convenient rural location in Surrey.

There will be opportunities to perform and we are very lucky to have such wonderful facilities for performance at the Menuhin School. We are also excited to have Alison Rhind to work with us as pianist. Repertoire will be expected to be communicated in advance to enable the best classes possible.
