Britten Music Course

Since 2010, the Britten Music Course (BMC) has given opportunities to talented young musicians to develop their skills, learn new repertoire and perform at the highest standards while experiencing boarding life at Gresham’s with like-minded children. Named after Gresham’s most famous musical Old Boy Benjamin Britten, the BMC is a residential music course for passionate, young musicians between the ages of 8-13.

Amid much music-making, quizzes, pizza nights, trips to the beach, games time and a trip to the Red House in Aldeburgh, former home of Benjamin Britten, we ensure the children have an action-packed week. BMC participants enjoy a mix of orchestral and choral workshops, with opportunities to perform in both solo and ensemble concerts, making full use of our new state of the art Music School, The Britten Building. The course culminates in a concert on the Saturday afternoon which will showcase the results of the week’s workshops.

Details of the next course will be published here shortly. The cost of the BMC is £310 and includes all tuition, music, course T-shirt, activities and trips, accommodation, food and transport.

“Singing immaculately… magical and truly uplifting.”
