Pro Corda Chamber Residency

The Pro Corda Chamber Residency Course for string, piano and wind players, aged 8-18, is an inspirational and intense five day course at the end of the Summer. This is an ideal course to focus on instrumental music making just before the forthcoming academic year. It will focus on the key elements of chamber music alongside sessions in Dalcroze Eurhythmics, improvisation and composition.

The course takes place at the stunning Leiston Abbey, home of Pro Corda. During leisure times students will get to enjoy the beauty of the Leiston Abbey grounds.

Young people learning Dalcroze Eurhythmics:

All Pro Corda courses have excellent pastoral care, and this comes partly from the relatively small numbers on the course due to the emphasis on chamber music and partly from the expertise and experience of the pastoral staff. All staff are chosen for their experience and empathy, and students and parents alike will find a warm welcome. Pro Corda Residency is particularly suited to families with siblings who would like to attend a course together.

Leiston Abbey is in a beautiful part of the countryside which would make an excellent holiday venue for parents to relax and explore whilst the children have an inspiring and exciting time making music together.

The director of the course is Anita Strevens – well known chamber musician, Dalcroze Eurhythmics expert and cello teacher. She plays in Accordare Quartet, Trio Vita and has a duo partnership with Helen Crayford, piano. Anita was Cello Consultant for the new ABRSM syllabus. She also directs the Pro Corda Preparatory Course.
