Tim O'Brien teaching mandolin in 2005 Sore Fingers Summer Schools offers two residential courses as well as other one-day workshops and activities throughout the year.

Residential courses are held at the beautiful Kingham Hill School situated between Chipping Norton and Stow-on-the Wold in the heart of the Cotswolds. New for 2019, we are introducing a new type of break. A musical retreat and these events will be held at a small Hotel in Andalucia, in Southern Spain. See below for details.
