Workshops & Courses 2022
A New Flute Course!
Join me in charming surroundings in rural South Gloucestershire for a high energy weekend that I am sure will leave you inspired, confident and full of ideas.
There will be masterclasses and ensembles as well as sessions on memorising and folk. Technique will be addressed in ways that directly relate to pieces and through improvisation. For those who wish to perform there will be plenty of opportunities and everyone will have the chance to experiment with a loop pedal and make requests!
The course will be very much student-led, intimate and intense with a max of 8 residential places and a handful of day slots aimed at players of Grade 7 / 8 standard and above.
Fri 20th May 4pm - Sun 22nd May 4pm
