About the Course

We offer two types of music workshops:

1. Guitar Workshops: These workshops are suitable for guitarists of all levels - previously we've had beginners through to quite accomplished players - and our aim is to show how you can make the most of your existing skills as well as adding new tricks and tips to your repertoire. The workshops gives us a chance to go into detail on the technical side of guitar playing, covering fingerpicking, strumming, improvisational ideas and more. We cover tunes in a variety of styles, touching on folk, blues and the lighter end of rock. The aim is to have a fun but informative day working with each player's capabilities, supporting the beginners and stretching the more able.

2. All Instrument Workshops: These workshops are aimed at players of all levels - previously we've had beginners through to quite accomplished players - and we aim to get everyone playing together throughout the day, learning tunes and discovering new ideas and techniques. We cover music in a variety of styles, touching on folk, blues and the lighter end of rock, and discussing melody, accompaniment techniques and improvisation. You don't have to read music - most of the guitarists who come along don't! The aim is to have a fun but informative day working with each player's capabilities, supporting the beginners and stretching the more able.
