Jackdaws weekend courses run throughout the year for Voice, Piano, Strings and Woodwind, including a number of Ensemble courses. Our Course Leaders are talented and experienced musicians who offer a wide variety of focussed courses. ‘Inspiration, Access and Inclusion’ are at the heart of our organisation and we aim to promote a supportive and nurturing environment. A typical weekend runs from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, with lunch, supper and refreshments included, all provided at Jackdaws by our dedicated Cooks.  Accommodation can be arranged for those travelling from further afield, including rooms with local Hosts. Our weekend schedule includes time to relax and reflect during the course, to leave you refreshed and ready for each day. With a broad range of exciting courses in our 2023-2024 programme, we’re confident that there’s a weekend for you! Read on for details of all this season’s courses.
