Over the years we have run masterclasses for piano, wind instruments, senior vocal, strings, and guitar. A maximum of six participants each having 20 minutes exclusive time with the adjudicator in front of an audience. They are open to players/singers of any standard or experience. Participants will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis and applying is no guarantee of taking part. Find more details in the entries system under the relevant section. Those not selected will receive a refund of the fee.

  • Masterclasses will hopefully be running in the 2022 Festival
