About Language and Music for Life:

Photo of UK Summer Orchestral Music Course for ChildrenLanguage and Music for Life (LMFL) was born in 1997 and is committed to providing training in both music and foreign languages to students of all ages. The first LMFL summer course was held in 1997, and we have grown in size and quality ever since.

LMFL also provides unique 2-week summer music and language courses in south-west Wales, UK with a lower age limit of 10 years old and no upper age limit (adults included).

Why Choose a Summer Course with LMFL?

-  Professional Music Tutors
Our music tutors are all experienced teachers and internationally known performers. During the course they expect their students to work between each tutorial.

-  Promoting Individuality
Our music and language project functions in a context which is rich in individual ability, motivation, language, culture and generations.

-  International Student Atmosphere
Students are brought up in a very special type of ethos:  the importance of being internationally motivated. They all have in common very attentive and caring parents who want a very rounded education for their children.

Our Philosophy:

Music transcends age, race and civilisation. 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.
