Welcome to The Yehudi Menuhin School
The celebrated violinist Yehudi Menuhin founded his school in Surrey in 1963 to provide a place for musically gifted children from around the world to develop their talents to the highest level within a nurturing and stimulating academic environment, regardless of their economic background.
Today’s school provides a holistic education for 86 exceptional students aged from 8 to 19, with specialist tuition on the stringed instruments, piano and classical guitar. Our students split their time between their academic and musical studies, and are given many opportunities to perform in front of an audience. Concerts take place regularly in our own Menuhin Hall, but also in local schools, care homes and churches, carrying on Menuhin’s belief in the importance of giving back to the community.
Alongside their musical studies, students engage in a stimulating academic programme, and participate in a variety of sporting activities and the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.
What We Do
Our pupils lead busy and varied lives. Find out more about their musical studies and academic curriculum and how to apply to become a pupil at the School.
The Menuhin Hall
An Update from The Menuhin Hall
The Yehudi Menuhin School has been working hard putting appropriate measures in place so that we can stay open for pupils and staff. At the same time, we realise that performances with a live audience are an essential element of our pupils’ musical education, and at the heart of the unique Menuhin experience is the incredible community of Friends and supporters that join us for the many concerts and events which take place at The Menuhin Hall.
Subject to government guidelines, we are planning to reopen for a series of public concerts towards the beginning of 2021 – details will be listed on our website in due course. This term, however, we are planning a series of small-scale concerts with very limited seating, tickets for which will be made available to our Friends through a ballot.
We will also be sharing this term’s concerts by email via our Menuhin Hall at Home series. If you are not currently subscribed to this mailing list and would like the opportunity to enjoy our music from the comfort of your own living room, please use the sign-up form at www.themenuhinhall.co.uk. This will add your address to the distribution list for this concert series only.
Thank you for your generous support which has kept us going throughout these difficult months. We cannot wait to welcome you back to The Hall.
