About Cambridge Early Music
Cambridge Early Music was established by Selene Mills and William Clocksin in 1992, in response to the need for tuition in early music for amateur players and singers. Since then the summer schools have gone from strength to strength, maintaining a perfect balance of newcomers and ‘old hands’ who try to attend every year. The courses are small, so that everyone can get to know everyone else. The social aspect of the courses is important: tutors and students learn from each other as much in the dining hall as in the music rooms, and it’s definitely a two-way process. Selene and her assistants play a full part in the music as well as in the administration, and there is a high level of attention to the needs of each individual. The summer schools are financially self-supporting, with no outside funding. Cambridge Early Music survives because it is well supported by people who value its courses. Courses are open to everyone aged 18 and above.
