(Participants and Observers)
An application form for enrolment either as a participant or observer is provided on this website. There  is  a  registration  fee  of  £100.00  which  is non-refundable  unless  the application is not accepted. The balance of fees will be payable upon acceptance and should be paid no later than 14 June. As no refunds can be made we recommend that you take out insurance to cover unforeseen circumstances. In special circumstances, applications may be considered after this date. Students are requested to make payment by either Visa, Mastercard, Maestro or by cheque (drawn in Sterling on a British bank). All cheques should be made payable to Sherborne Summer  School  of  Music.  Early  application  is  recommended,  as entries  will be accepted in rotation,  except  in  cases  where  balance  must  be  taken  into  account.  We  have a minimum student age limit of 18 years old.


 Conducting Courses’ Observers
Conducting Courses’ Observers are able to enrol on any of our conductors’ courses taking an active part in elements of the course as detailed in each course description. Because of the ‘active involvement’ in these courses observers are expected to be at every session of the course throughout the week.


General Observers
General Observers will be welcome to enrol each week for any or all of our courses other than the Wind Chamber Music, Mixed Chamber Music and the Composers’ Workshop courses.   General Observers can move between  courses  but  will  not participate in any  of  the  activities other than those open to the whole school (e.g. Choral Workshops etc.). General Observers are expected to arrive at a course before the beginning of each session and not leave until after the end. They must not join the main body of the course and must refrain from conversation or any activity which will disturb the course including photography, video recording and any form of sound recording
