Each participant builds a timetable personalised to them, with three slots each day for your choice from more than 20 week-long courses every week. Courses run at the same time each day from Sunday to Friday each week and you commit to a course for the full week.
This is followed by Open Space: a new daily session to help you make the most of your time at Dartington. You can take part in a different workshop or taster event every day, or you can choose to rest, practise or explore the grounds – whatever supports your personal journey.
All musical abilities are catered for, from absolute beginners to advanced postgraduate students. We’ve created four categories for the courses, which you’ll find on the timetables and course descriptions. We’ve given a general idea of what level you should be for each one, but this doesn’t always correspond directly to ability or confidence, so please use your own judgement when deciding which course is right for you. The majority of courses have no selection process, but our advanced level courses do require the submission of supporting materials.
