From Reed to Recital - Bassoon Workshop
with Robert Codd
Accompanist: David Price
Friday 2 – Sunday 4 June 2017
Level: Intermediate - Advanced
Course No. 3229
A course for bassoonists to experience playing together in small groups; anything from duos to octets, developing sight-reading and enjoying the sheer exhilaration of working in ensembles.
Accompanist and co-tutor, David Price, will focus on working on repertoire for bassoon and piano. Many aspects of bassoon technique will be examined and explained; from reed adjusting to fingerings and tackling those tricky passages.
The weekend would be invaluable in helping to prepare for A-level performances, end-of-year recitals, grading exams or just working through those pieces that you have never had a chance to explore before. There will be a Participants Concert, which is completely voluntary.
All courses are held at Jackdaws in the village of Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, roughly 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is roughly 2.5 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
