Founded by violinist Nicola Benedetti, the Benedetti Foundation provides orchestra-based workshops for young people and teachers, that showcase what Music Education at its best can look and feel like. With lockdown, the foundation went on-line during May with the first ever Virtual Sessions. And the Benedetti Foundation is continuing to work on-line and during July and August will be providing the Virtual Mini Sessions - short, focused workshops designed to provide in depth and detailed exploration on a wide variety of topics.

The workshops will be in the form of short, concentrated sessions on particular topics, practical sessions, concentrating on technique, physicality and well-being, as well as discussion sessions. And there will be separate sessions aimed at young people, music students, recent graduates, instrumental teachers and adult learners.

A whole series of workshops is planned for July and August, ranging from intensive courses on vibrato for school age string players (separate courses for violinist and violists, and cellists and bassists) to a teachers' session on building a Kodaly-inspired music programme in Primary School.

All the sessions are delivered by world-class musicians and educators. There is a small admin fee to participate in the Mini Sessions. Bursary support is available – no one will be prevented from attending due to financial circumstances.
