- 15 july 2017
A week of superb music education plus cultural exposure to a land where an
ancient heart beats inside a modernising country.
The tutti Festival was my second international trip for a music festival
with my School, and I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere in comparison to the other festival I have attended. The
fact that it wasn't a competition meant that we were invited to make lots of new friends with people from other schools, which
was easily a highlight of my Music Tour. I also appreciate the effort that went into helping the students improve musically,
and I came away from the Festival and the Music Tour feeling more confident about my performance skills.

What attending music directors have had to say......
"The boys had a great time and got some great musical and life lessons out of the whole experience.
It was pretty much everything we could have hoped for."
Australian Music Director, tutti wymb 2013
".....a big thank you
to you and your team for the wonderful organization and experience at the tutti world youth music festival in Beijing.
I felt that that there was a very good balance between the
cultural and musical programmes. The concerts and workshops were fantastic.
The staff and practitioners were very helpful and generous in sharing their expertise.... I'm
a die-hard choral person and the festival certainly opened my eyes and ears to the realm of instrumental music, particularly
concert bands! Talk about WOW factor." Attending music staff member
from China, tutti wymb 2013
...the festival was an amazing experience. The children
have not stopped talking about it and most enjoyed the experience with the faculty they worked with......As a staff member,
I thought the logistics were incredibly managed and the response to how kids and staff were feeling was excellent. We enjoyed
the fact that the logistics were not our worry and that we could focus on the kids. ( Clever management of the timetable to
facilitate sleep-ins as the week progressed ). Attending music staff member from Australia, tutti
"In the master classes with the guest conductors each girl had a more personalised form of attention
and instruction that the faculty member had on their playing and technique. The girls were so amazed that in each session
each one had the opportunity to have instruction and guidance from a professional musician that was unique to her playing
and not just in general." South African Music Director, tutti
"Our students thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience both culturally and musically. They
came back enthusiastic and inspired in their music. They loved working with such an exciting faculty and appreciated all they
learnt from them. The event being set in Beijing offered up a unique cultural experience which students relished."
Music Director, tutti wymb 2011
"I again would like to thank all the faculty members who made the tutti
festival such an amazing space of learning without the pressure of competing with other people. Our girls cannot stop talking
about how much they have learnt and how great a time they had." South
African Music Director, tutti wymb 2011
passion and music
from the heart
Throughout the tutti world youth music festival beijing participants will undertake a series of masterclasses focusing on technique improvement run by a stellar
international faculty. As well all groups will have the opportunity to perform their own chosen repertoire for other participants
in a non competitive atmosphere and as part of a combined tutti ensemble. As Artistic Director Paul Dean will again lead the event. He will inspire you! Paul is one of Australia's foremost music educators
and he promises that the experience will be exceptional. Remember....the focus will be on learning to play your instrument
or sing better. It is not a competitive event...that is not our philosophy. You will find that this creates an atmosphere
of friendship and enjoyment of music far beyond what you have ever experienced. See what Paul Dean says here. The tutti faculty at the Farewell Dinner 2013
