Gifted and Talented Sessions at Jackdaws

PREPARATION GIFTED & TALENTED and GIFTED & TALENTED
SCHEDULE FOR SUMMER TERM 2013

Jackdaws is delighted to be able to offer two new strands of gifted and talented provision for young musicians thanks to support from Sound Foundation Somerset (the Somerset Music Education Hub) and Jackdaws Education.

We are in the unique and fortunate position of having a different outstanding, professional musician(s) coming to Jackdaws every weekend to tutor on our courses for adult musicians of all abilities. Gifted and Talented opens up the opportunity for young people aged between 5-18 and at school in Somerset to learn from and be inspired by these international players in two different ways.

Preparation Gifted & Talented
Groups of young players of the relevant instrument come to Jackdaws for a workshop between 1-3.30pm supported by a teacher. 20 places available on a first come first served basis.

Gifted & Talented
Fully funded places available on the weekend course for an older more advanced student (typically aged 15+ and of a Grade 5 plus standard, each course has a slightly different criteria). There is also a subsidised place available for their teacher if desired. Young people under the age of 17 may need a chaperone if not accompanied by their teacher. Help can be given with travel and accommodation costs.

PLEASE NOTE ALL STUDENTS MUST BE RESIDENT & ATTENDING STATE SCHOOL IN SOMERSET
