Bassoon Workshop: From Reed to Recital!
with Robert Codd
Accompanist: David Price
Friday 1 June – Sunday 3 June 2018
Course No. 3283
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. Many aspects of bassoon technique will be examined and explained; from reed adjusting to fingerings and tackling those tricky passages.
Accompanist and co-tutor, David Price, will focus on working on repertoire for bassoon and piano. 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 an informal 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, approximately 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is just 3 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
