Adult (summer) schools/camps for amateurs

November 30, 2017, 1:44 PM · Hi All,
I live in rural South Australia but am open to travel. I am looking to see what residential music schools are available for amateurs. Looking for something longer than a weekend.

I’m looking for a range of activities, with a range of abilities eg Orchestra, chamber, technique lessons, a variety of different music such as jazz, Gypsy, Celtic etc.

If I have to travel then it’s better if the course is longer than a weekend and reasonably easy to get to. Also, it would be preferable if the area is good for general tourism as my non-playing husband would probably come with me.
