Housing: Will you need housing? This will help us to decide how best to house our young artists. We refer students to the Nido student housing in West Hampstead London. It is a reasonable cost and good location. The cost per night is from £41 (Silver Ensuite) for a single bed room depending on your options. Nido does not do group bookings so students will need to register and pay for their housing themselves. You are however free to find housing wherever you like, and many students in past years have chosen to find an AirBnB or stay in local hostels which are very cheap. Summer reservations are not yet open but you should check back later. If you have trouble registering, they have a convenient chat service and are very helpful. Please contact us with your questions if you have any problems.
While not technically participating, auditors will be allowed to sit in on lessons, classes, master classes, attend all events and will be eligible for the housing option, but will not be eligible for scholarships.
Fees for auditing only:
Per Week: £200
There is no fee for pianist participation.
