About

The Mastercourse reflects Oxford Lieder’s commitment to cultivating the next generation of song performers. The course offers students the chance to immerse themselves completely in song, working with leading professionals in a welcoming, supportive environment, and attending concerts given by world-class artists.

Our next Mastercourse will run from 28th March to 4th April 2020. Further information will be released later in the year.

Please contact Kate Swinburne-Johnson if you would like to be notified when information becomes available.

Participant Comments

“The Mastercourse was such a special experience, and one that I will never forget. To spend time in beautiful Oxford, totally immersed in music-making, under the guidance of internationally renowned musicians, and then being able to experience stunning concert performances in the evenings – it was a dream week!”

“This has been one of the richest musical experiences of my life.”

“I cannot thank you all enough for this wonderful experience. To be in such a magical place as Oxford and to be touched by so many brilliant musical minds and teachers in such a short time is absolutely incredible. It has been an inspirational experience.”
