Waltons New School of Music - Summer at the New School

Summer at the New School

Welcome to Summer 2017 at the New School!

In addition to private (one-to-one), partner and small group instruction in a range of instruments (including voice/singing), we offer summer versions of some of our most popular group courses, an acclaimed songwriting workshop, Intensive Lessons and Irish Music Tasters.

Many of our courses and workshops fill well in advance, and early enrolment is advisable.


CONTENTS


Private, Partner & Small Group Lessons

Our 2017 Summer Term is divided into two parts. Students enrolling for lessons can choose one or both parts:

  • Part One (5 weeks): 3 July – 5 August
  • Part Two (4 weeks): 8 August – 2 September

30-, 45- and 60-minute private, partner and small group lessons are offered during the Summer Term for a wide range of instruments (including voice/singing). See our Lesson/Course Catalogue for more information.
