From Reed to Recital
From Reed to Recital is an opportunity for Bassoonists to play together in small ensembles with professional guidance from Robert and Maria. Classes in reed-making and contrabassoon are available on request and individual coaching will be offered but there will be at least one ensemble running in all sessions.
The tutors will give a recital on the Saturday morning and the course will close with a concert by participants (voluntary participation!) of pieces they have been working on during the weekend. An accompanist will be available for part of the weekend.
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.
A £50 deposit is required to guarantee your place on a course. The total course fee is inclusive of all meals and tuition except breakfast, which is included in the separate B&B price. Please let us know of any dietary requirements at the time of booking and we will be happy to accommodate.
