Strings and Things

with Nic Fallowfield & Jenny Curtis

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. Some music will be sent out in advance so that participants can prepare, but there may also be a certain amount of sight-reading involved; music will be of a suitable standard.

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


A £70 deposit is required to secure your place on this course. The balance of fees, including accommodation, is due 3 weeks before the course start date.
