Reina Sofía School of Music | Summer Programmes for 8- to 17-year-olds

From 5 to 18 July, the Reina Sofía School of Music offers two unique programmes of music training: the Young Artists Summer Camp (for musicians aged 12-17) in Madrid and the Music and Fun Summer Camp (musical, cultural, and leisure experiences for string players and pianists aged 8-12, of all levels of experience) in Santander.

Both programmes offer the possibility of choosing between Full Campus (where students stay overnight) or Day Campus. Furthermore, the Reina Sofía School offers scholarships to help with the cost of the programme, as well as early-bird discounts.

Young Artists Summer Camp

This programme, held at the Reina Sofía School of Music in Madrid, is intended for 12- to 17-year-olds of intermediate or advanced levels. Participants will enjoy a wonderful musical experience consisting of individual technique classes, rehearsals, and chamber music, in addition to masterclasses and group sessions designed to help them enter the professional world of music.

Music and Fun Summer Camp

This programme, held in Santander, is intended for 8- to 12-year-olds interested in string instruments or piano. The summer experience will be a cultural and linguistic immersion in the world of music with sports, languages, and leisure activities balancing the intensity of instrumental activity. It is open to all levels and is a great choice as a prelude to the Young Artists programme.

Participants combine their individual and chamber music classes at the Ataúlfo Argenta Conservatory with leisure and sports activities – swimming, tennis, volleyball, etc. – at the Ruth Beitia Municipal Sports Complex. They study languages, surf on weekends, and take part in a host of enriching cultural activities, including attending closed-doors rehearsals of the 20th Santander Encounter of Music and Academy, a music festival throughout Cantabria organised by the School.

All participants derive great benefits from developing their artistic skills with the finest international teachers, in an atmosphere which seeks to promote dialogue between cultures, through music and the arts, with colleagues from all over the world.
