Level: All

Course No. 3276
Solo Study Course

A weekend of German, French and Italian art-songs; Lied, Mélodie and Canzona.

Explore how composers illuminate text, and make a real marriage - or a very civil partnership - between words and music. We will make foreign language less foreign by examining the meaning of the text itself, and considering how the words and music interact. Guaranteed enlightenment - guaranteed fun! Please bring four pieces; suggestions can be provided on request.


All courses are held at Jackdaws in the village of Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, approximately 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is just 3 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.

A £50 deposit is required to secure your place on this course.
