Oxford Players
11-16 August 2024

Designed for enthusiasts of any age, in this option we will work together on finding ways to refine and improve your playing. In your individual lessons we will focus on the pieces you bring with you, as well as introducing you to new repertoire and ideas for developing your practice and musicianship. You can learn from watching others play in masterclasses, or you can choose to find like-minded flute players to play duets, trios and quartets with. You will have access to all the established OFSS experiences including ensembles, flute choir and concerts. Oxford Players is for anyone who enjoys playing with others, learning from and watching masterclasses and would appreciate the experience of individual lessons with your flute teacher and with your accompanist rather than performing in a masterclass or concert.
