Shipley Summer Music School

Shipley Arts Festival希普利藝術節

‘One of the UK’s most highly respected UK Classical Music Festivals’  



Following the success of our inaugural summer school we will shortly be announcing our 2018 Summer School


September 2017


Trinity Sannyi Music Academy – 2018 Summer Program


We are delighted to offer a Summer Exchange Programme, under our Trinity Sannyi Music Academy, for young musicians at Chinese and other Asian conservatories.  Students will be able to explore and experience the British musical scene while living and studying within a safe, creative healthy and stimulating environment. 



Shipley Arts Festival and String Academy prides itself on not only being an outstanding Festival and music academy with top class tuition, but also a fun and culturally diverse experience for young people from all over the world. We encourage our students to develop as young professionals and as individuals, improving their confidence, performance, English language and social skills.



During the one week summer programme, students have weekly performance opportunities at our internal Performance Platform and a public concert in a prestigious venue. Parent and friends are welcome to attend our public performance.



We hope this refreshing, rewarding and thoroughly inspirational experience will prepare you for any future path in music education, and we warmly welcome you to join us.
