In a country with four distinct linguistic communities, music has been an important factor in developing a singular culture within Switzerland, and this makes it a fascinating destination for a school music tour.  

If you travel during the summer, your band could stay in the beautiful town of Montreux and perform at the world-famous Montreux Jazz Festival! And you won’t just be able to perform in Switzerland – you can cross the border into France and perform there too!

When you’re not performing on your school music tour to Montreux, Switzerland, there are lots of exciting visits and activities to enjoy, including the unmissable Queen: The Studio Experience - an exhibition of memorabilia in the studio the band owned and recorded seven albums in. Visit Mont Blanc and explore some ice caves and sample some of that famous Swiss cheese and chocolate to get the real alpine experience!
