About the Workshop

Week-long chamber music summer school in the coastal village of Ullapool. Working in ensembles under the guidance of the Edinburgh String Quartet, Philip Burrin, Maximiliano Martin and Rosie Staniforth, woodwind coaches, through the day, there will still be time to appreciate the surroundings – mountains, sealochs, gardens and islands – and enjoy local seafood and Scottish pubs in the long summer evenings. Open to all ages, instruments, and levels. While ready formed groups are particularly encouraged, you can also attend as an individual. Also includes workshops, masterclasses, clinics, the opportunity to play a session as part of a professional quartet and to perform at the end of the week.
