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 with this age group, and students and parents alike will find us warm and welcoming.

The surroundings at Leiston Abbey in the heart of Suffolk make for a magical first music course experience, where new but long-lasting friendships are made.

The director of the course is Sebastian Mueller who currently maintains principal study violin classes at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (Junior Department) London, and at Chethams’ School of Music (Manchester).
