About English Music Academy
English Music Academy is a dynamic organisation dedicated to bringing the finest learning opportunities to young musicians.
With eight years of experience devising and promoting music courses, our focus is towards excellence using individual practice methods and chamber music as the key to quality performance.

We believe in a holistic and practical approach to music learning linking instrumental work, singing, theory, sight reading and technique to illuminate and inform. Using this method, students quickly understand how all aspects of musicality are interrelated and form a finished work, and how this feeds into performance, personal practice and group rehearsals. Skills taught are transferable to any instrument and any piece of music. The whole process of learning music becomes more manageable and fun, giving the student greater ownership and trust in their performance experience.

We offer two distinctive courses specifically designed for schools who value instrumental and vocal music: CHAMBER MUSIC and the MUSIC EXAM BOOTCAMP. These courses can be delivered as 1-day, 2-day or 4-day courses and can be opened to schools local to our host venue.

Our courses link the pieces covered in our ensembles with the Elements sessions during the courses and students will be given a comprehensive guide to each of these aspects of music: rhythm, meter, pitch, melody, phrasing, harmony, tempo, dynamics and performance skills.

A key outcome of our courses is to show these should be applied in personal practice. We will cover ways to make sight reading and aural skills more achievable, and all relevant aspects of music theory, as well as giving advice about performing with an accompanist and in ensembles, thus creating a ‘complete picture’ as well as empowering students who are preparing for exams.

Through its extensive national and international connections English Music Academy organises courses and performance opportunities within the U.K. for international youth orchestras, bands and ensembles. The combination of high quality tuition from our experienced tutors and the opportunity for groups to perform in quality venues within the U.K. makes any visit a life-enhancing and memorable experience for all the participants. These cultural tours also include the opportunity to learn more about British culture, its heritage and the diversity that has impacted so positively on the artistic life of Britain.
