Bass Club Summer School 2017

Sunday 20 - Saturday 26 August 2017 at the Yehudi Menuhin School, Surrey

Now in its 31st 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.
