Weekend Vocal COurses

Vocal weekends at Jackdaws offer a wide variety of options with an inspirational selection of Course Leaders, each an expert in their chosen specialism. Most will follow a masterclass format, where each singer works on their repertoire in turn, observed by the group. There may also be an opportunity to work on ensembles, duets and trios, depending on the course. During the breaks in teaching, you can use one of our practice rooms to apply what you have learnt, or reflect on the session as you enjoy the surroundings in the garden.

A standard weekend course runs from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, with lunch and dinners included, along with refreshments to keep you topped up, all provided on site at Jackdaws. Bed and Breakfast can be arranged for those of you travelling from further afield.
