Our music teachers are carefully selected not only for their extremely high standards of musicianship and expertise, but also for their energy and enthusiasm for working with young musicians and their talent for teaching.
The heart of The Ingenium Academy lies in our distinguished faculty, which comprises some of the UK's finest teachers and musicians. Our team includes names from the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal College of Music, the National Youth Choir of Great Britain and multi-Grammy award-winning a cappella group, the Swingle Singers. All of our teachers have extensive experience and are committed to nurturing the talent of our students.
Our teaching methods range from full ensemble rehearsals to small sectional groups and one on one tuition, in which students are encouraged to focus on whatever aspect of their playing / singing they wish to develop.
This gives our students the opportunity to learn from and work with many diverse and inspiring professionals both on an individual and group level.
Please visit our instrumental, vocal, piano and saxophone pages for further details regarding our teachers, workshop leaders and conductors for the 2018 season.
Our students rehearse and perform challenging and exciting repertoire that is carefully selected to develop technique, deepen the students' understanding and awareness of the music and to provide a great sense of enjoyment and achievement in performance.
The Ingenium Academy is a rare and unique opportunity for students to share the joy and excitement that they receive from music making with other talented, young musicians from all over the world.
Concerts and Performance Opportunities
During the three-week summer school, students perform two public concerts - one in a prestigious venue in central London and in our final showcase concert on campus at Winchester College's concert hall. In addition to these two public performances, students also have weekly performance opportunities at our internal Performance Platforms. These evenings provide a friendly, safe and informal environment for students to experiment and to develop their performance skills, conquer nerves and build confidence.
Parents and friends are welcome to attend our public performances. More information about concerts will be available nearer the time.
"The discipline, teamwork, concentration and intellectual application needed for excellent music making creates rounded, confident individuals. The Ingenium Academy's ethic is to enhance the all-round musician through courses delivered by a talented and experienced team of musicians with enthusiasm and passion. I am delighted to be involved."
Tom Hammond, former Principal Conductor, Royal Junior Academy of Music
