Applications are now open for the 2024 Music Summer School at Uppingham School – please apply online by 28 February 2023 if at all possible. While applications will be considered after this date, it may not be possible to accommodate your preferences.

Applications for woodwind places will be decided by mid-February and applicants informed of the Director’s decision.

By submitting an application, you consent to NLMS collecting your names, contact details and payment history. Your data will be used only to contact you about the Society’s administration and activities, and we will never share them. You may see and update your data, or request their erasure or restricted use at any time by contacting the Administrator.


When you use the online application form, please be ready to provide the following information, which will help us to allocate you to the most appropriate course:

  • Is your sight-reading considered average/good/very good?
  • Additional (and doubling) instruments played and standard.


  • Voice

The fees listed below are confirmed for 2023. All fees are per person.

Non-resident with lunch, dinner and beverages £695
* A single room will be allocated unless a shared room is
requested on the application form.

An en-suite room may be requested on the application form
but we cannot guarantee one as these are limited in number.

There is a £40 additional payment for en-suite.


Applications should be accompanied by a £75 deposit per person and full fees must be paid by 30 June 2024. Payments may also be made by instalments between December 2023 and June 2024.
