Chamber Music Weekend
This course is now completely full! Any further enquiries will be placed on a waiting list. Please note that Stephen Gutman will replace Michael Dussek as the fourth tutor on this course.
This ever popular course is an opportunity for wind players to enjoy ensemble playing with professional coaching. Music is chosen from the 18th to 20th centuries and there will be a tutors’ concert on the Saturday evening.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the course and cannot think of any ways of improving it. The tuition was excellent.“
With at least 5 ensembles running over the weekend, this is our biggest annual course. Please note that in order to provide a suitable balance of instruments and abilities this is a selected course; the earlier you apply the sooner we can let you know. This course is likely to sell out we advise to applying early.
All courses are held at Jackdaws in the village of Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, roughly 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is roughly 2.5 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
