Timothy Barratt, a highly experienced teacher, performer, examiner and adjudicator, believes that the main emphasis should be the enjoyment of making music – aided by a sense of humour – and hopes that the mutual support of the group will instill greater confidence for all players. Work on any favourite pieces within this framework, including individual tuition and group discussion on performance, style, and technique. The content would also be suitable for piano teachers who want to improve their approach to exam pieces.
Courses take place at Jackdaws in Great Elm, 3 miles outside Frome in Somerset. If you require B&B, we will book it on your behalf. Accommodation fees are payable in addition to the course fee.
A £50 deposit is required to secure your place on this course.
The Course Fee includes all meals, refreshments and tuition at Jackdaws, except breakfast, which is included in the separate B&B fee.
Lunch and dinner will be prepared on site by our dedicated Cooks and served in accordance with appropriate social distancing measures. If you are vegetarian/vegan, or have a food allergy, you must let us know in advance, so that our cooks can plan the meals for the weekend accordingly. We are ‘allergy aware’, but we rely on participants letting us know if they have specific food allergies. Please also let us know if you carry any emergency medication.
NEW: Remote observers
We are pleased to now be able to offer limited remote observer places for many of the courses. Tuning in via zoom with the opportunity to learn from the sessions as they unfold, try things out whilst on mute and ask questions as appropriate. At £50 for a weekend course and £75 for a three day course these represent an extremely good value way of taking part from wherever you are.
In the event that a course is unable to take place in person as advertised because of Covid-19 restrictions nationally or locally we may, where feasible/desired, provide alternative provision to allow this course to run online at a reduced rate. You will receive guidance on participating, alternative timetables and assistance in getting set up. You will also have the option to withdraw your place and receive a full refund, or transfer it to another course within the same season.
