About

The Aboyne Cello Festival and Summer School is known to be a fun, supportive, cello summer school based in wonderful surroundings with an ethos of friendship and positive thinking. The core of the course is designed for conservatoire level students, but we also inspire teenagers, professionals, adult amateurs grade 6+, and include coaching for younger participants. If you play the cello but are unsure about what you would want to be involved with, please get in touch to find out more about which parts of the course would be suitable for you!

The Aboyne Cello Festival is open to all ages from 7+ and of any standard. The advised standard for those participating in the Cello Orchestra is grade 6+.
