Jackdaws Strings Course Leader Nic Fallowfield
Level: Intermediate-Advanced
Fee: £390

A course aimed at amateur string players who will relish the opportunity to work at a variety of music, both chamber music and for a small string ensemble.

In an atmosphere of support and encouragement advice will be given on instrumental technique and on how best to gain more confidence in being part of an ensemble. Participants can expect to tackle string orchestra repertoire of challenging standard. Some music will be sent out in advance so that participants can prepare, but there will also be a certain amount of sight-reading involved, so players will also need a reasonable proficiency in sight-reading. You are welcome to contact the office for further information and availability; as an Ensemble Course a balance of instruments is required.

Nic Fallowfield is a violinist and conductor with many years’ experience of teaching and coaching string players at all levels and of all ages.
