The Cotswold Suzuki Group Course is open to all Suzuki violinists, violists and cellists - Twinklers to Book 10.  For students in Books 1 and 2, the course will include group classes, a private lesson, sight-reading classes and afternoon activities.  Depending on reading ability, students can take part in one of two chamber music courses.  Both chamber music courses include group classes and string orchestra in the mornings, and coached chamber music sessions in the afternoon.  There are solo concerts, a concert specifically for the musicians on the Chamber course and a grand finale concert on Monday afternoon.  Friends and relatives are welcome at all these  concerts.  It is a requirement for all participants to be BSI members.

The course is held at the Viney Hill Christian Adventure Centre, nestling between the River Severn and River Wye in the beautiful Royal Forest of Dean.  It is situated one mile off the A48 and is 2.5 miles north of Lydney, Gloucestershire.  

Limited indoor accommodation is available with all bedding provided, however, as the rooms are 6 and 8 bedded, they may suit larger families or a group that wouldn’t mind sharing.  This is available at an extra cost of £36.30 a room (pro rata if sharing).  For those who like camping but find putting up the tent a chore there is a static campsite of ten tents each sleeping up to 6 people.  This may help with car space if travelling some distance.  For the more adventurous you can bring your own tent.

With the music, Viney Hill offers children and parents the opportunity to partake in more adventurous activities.  In this great tradition the Cotswold Suzuki Group will encourage parents and children to work and play hard.
