Tutors

All but two of our tutors are members of The Orchestra of Opera North, or are free-lance professional players (who often free-lance with Opera North). One of our French Horn Tutors, Naomi Atherton, is the principal horn player of the Manchester Camerata and of the Northern Chamber Orchestra. Another of our French Horn Tutors is Sue Baxendale, who is the principal horn with Scottish Opera. All of our tutors therefore have a wealth of advice and expertise to share with you.

Unlike many other events of this type, the tutor : attendee ratio is excellent at 1 : 5 (at maximum capacity), compared to a more typical 1 : 10 (or more) at many other events.

As well as tutored sessions in groups, we can also offer individual lessons with our tutors (at an additional cost of £30 for 45 minutes, or £40 for an hour). On the two-day retreat these are restricted to two/three lessons per tutor due to the time available and will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
