During July and August the Hindhead Music Centre hosts a variety of musical holidays for which it has developed an international reputation. One year we
had students from sixteen different countries! 2019 will be the 39th year of these courses which range from Discover Music! for children aged 6-10
who still may not play an instrument, to master-class courses for advanced adult performers.
Set in a comfortable Victorian country house with six acres of private gardens, the Centre has the atmosphere of a large family
home (which in fact it is). The property is surrounded by hundreds of acres of National Trust land making up Hindhead Commons, an
officially designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, centred round the famous Devil's Punchbowl.
A heated swimming pool provides opportunities for relaxation and fun. All food is freshly home-cooked on the premises,
in fact the excellent food is one of the many highlights of the courses, and all meals (breakfast, morning coffee,
lunch, afternoon tea and supper) are all included in the fees (except where stated below).
The Hindhead Music Centre is an idyllic setting for chamber music, concerts and general music study. The house has a beautiful Recital
room, which comfortably seats seventy-five, with a superb Steinway concert grand piano.
Meals are taken in the Orangery, with views over the gardens to the South Downs. The Drawing room and Library are
comfortable relaxing rooms with huge sofas; almost all the bedrooms have grand pianos and bunk-beds, with from two to five
people, with a few single rooms, and three en-suite.
All courses which cater for children include excellent 24-hour
pastoral and medical care under the watchful eye of our highly experienced and qualified Matron, and Ann
Hughes-Chamberlain, for whom the Hindhead Music Centre is also her home.
