What is AIMS?

AIMS International Music School offers a week of fantastic singing classes, performance opportunities, along with concerts and social events.

Our Tutors bring a wealth of international performing and teaching experience with them and our House Pianists are drawn from the cream of the country’s professional accompanists at British Conservatoires and Opera Houses.

As an AIMS singing student, you can choose to enrol on either the Solo or the Choral course. However, you may like to consider opting for our Crossover course, allowing you to choose a mixture of classes from each. This is becoming an increasingly popular option.

We also offer a course specifically for Piano Accompanists, with timetables tailored to individual areas of interest.

For more information download the AIMS 2017 Brochure, or to book please download and complete an AIMS 2017 Booking Form and send it to Penny. A deposit of £75 is due at the time of booking and can be paid by bank transfer or cheque (please see the form for details).

Solo

Our SOLO course is aimed at singers of all ages (18 plus). This could be young professionals on the threshold of a career, students at music colleges, amateurs of ‘semi-pro’ standard and singers with a little less experience, but a desire to sing really well.

Perfect For All Ages!

“So much music, so much fun, loads of fantastic singing. Thanks all for such a great time!”

Choral

Our CHORAL course is open to all: there is no need to audition. We offer a range of choirs and vocal groups, covering a varied repertoire, catering we hope, to individual tastes. Crucially, all our choral classes culminate in performances, be it lunchtime concerts, or larger choral works with soloists and orchestra.

No need to audition!

“I was amazed by the musical and human qualities of the tutors, the pianists and the students. And also by the contagious joy to sing in the air. Thank you all, hope to see you next year”

Crossover

The CROSSOVER course, which has become more popular in recent years, offers students the chance to ‘pick and choose’. We feel this gives people an opportunity to really tailor their week with us, according to their preferences. Occasionally timetable clashes occur, but we can almost always come up with an alternative option, to the satisfaction of all!

An opportunity to really tailor your week with us

“Still feeling goosebumpy recalling how suddenly in the middle of yesterday’s extremely powerful staged opera extract from Rimsky Korsakov’s Mozart and Salieri (not an opera I’d heard of before) suddenly we were surrounded by the opening of Mozart’s Requiem sung by a pop up choir seated throughout the audience. It really was something I will never forget.”

Piano Accompanists

The PIANO ACCOMPANIST course, which is run by Terence Allbright, is a great option for established duos and pianists looking to progress.

“Drove home on a high after the staged opera scenes, which were great as always. Amazing what happens in just a week. It’s a journey and it’s always life changing. I’m tired now though!”
