RSCM Courses in the UK:
Bath Course 2024
The Bath Course is a summer residency for young singers with a strong ethos of community, sharing and, of course, great music. Course musicmaking is rooted in liturgy and worship and aims to send attendees back to their home choirs as energising beacons for the future.
Hosted in Bath at Kingswood School, the course is open to a wide age and ability range. Attendees will leave the course enriched, inspired, and better developed in their own skills no matter the starting point.
The timetable for the week includes rehearsals and other musical activities designed to develop and inspire young choral singers. As well as taking part in a wide range of choral services at the school during the week and a concert on the Saturday evening, course attendees will also sing in the inspiring setting of Bath Abbey.
The course fee includes full board accommodation, and all tuition and resources for the week. Singers are accommodated in a mixture of multi-bed rooms and dormitories, and an experienced pastoral team look after the safety and well-being of course members. Whilst there is plenty of musical activity during the week, there is also lots of free time and opportunities to relax and socialise with other singers.
There are two organ scholarships available to apply for, paying a reduced fee. More details are available on the flyer.

‘I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on the course and I just wish I had found out about it sooner. I’d do it again if I could and I will be recommending it to young people in my area. It’s been an amazing week, thank you!’ – Singer
‘I absolutely love the sense of community on the Bath Course. The house I was in very much felt like a complete family by the end of the week and I loved seeing friends that I made and hadn’t seen since last year and making new ones.’ – Singer
‘Thank you to all the staff for such a wonderful course in Bath. It was my son’s first time and he absolutely loved it and is keen to return next year. He sang for the entire journey home!’ – Parent
