Jackdaws runs weekend courses for voice, piano, strings and woodwind, together with a number of ensemble courses,  with a wide variety of experienced and talented musicians .  A typical weekend runs from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, with lunch and dinners included, all provided at Jackdaws.   Bed and Breakfast is also available for those travelling from further afield. The timetable allows time for relaxation and practice, to apply what you have learnt, or reflect on the session with a walk through the garden. Read on for details  of all this season’s courses.
