Why Choose LMFL?

  Qualified & Experienced Music Tutors
The music tutors are all experienced teachers and internationally known performers. During the course they expect their students to work between each tutorial.

  Individual Concentration
Our music and language project functions in a context which is rich in individual ability, motivation, language, culture and generations.

•  Flexible Learning
Learning is not to be restricted to its manifestation in performance, though this is an essential part, but is to be intimately linked to the dynamics of the whole individual who is able to learn while changing, and able to change while learning.

Our Musical Philosophy:

Even the most superficial consideration of the question of the relationship between music and community brings the realization that music is seen to be a necessary part of community rituals, both sacred and secular.

Who Are LMFL Students?

•  International Students:
This is truly an international event with between 23 to 38 countries on average represented in each course. One third of our students are English speakers.

•  Professional Students:
One third intend to become professional musicians, and looking back over past years, they have done very well (Some students are already teachers in Conservatoires in their own country, some are now performers, and all of those who intended to join their preferred music college, did so).

•  Academically-minded:
LMFL students are typically excellent, enlightened musicians who chose to go to Oxford, Cambridge and other high calibre colleges, with music being part of their “profile” needed to gain entry to these prestigious colleges in the UK.

•  Established / Outstanding Musicians:
Some summer students are already outstanding musicians who will pursue a career as a professional performer.

•  Tourist Musicians:
Some students are “tourist musicians”. They are encouraged by their parents or guardians who want what is best for the child or young adult in education. Interestingly, at least half of these students return home to their own lives having become passionate musicians over the summer course and immersion experience.
