We are sorry to announce that for the first time in 34 years we have had to cancel the summer school. We don't feel able to offer our unique OFSS experience of a musically rewarding and socially enriching week in a safe way due to the on-going uncertainties with Covid-19. We are very sad - but already making plans for August 2021 and we very much hope to see you next year!

You may play any pieces that inspire you or that you would like to learn more about. Technical brilliance is great but definitely not essential!

Everyone can learn as much from a simple piece as from a technical cliffhanger. Oxford Performers and Oxford Masterclass participants are asked to tell us by July 1st which pieces they wish to study or perform so that programmes, teachers and accompanists can be suitably assigned. Just before the course a list of those pieces will  be circulated to all participants.

All Flutes Plus can supply any music you need.
