Level: All
Fee: £210

Course No. 3251
Solo Study Course

Draw upon the experiences you gain with maturity to benefit your artistry.  We will discuss why this can be such a satisfying time to make music, trusting in your musical self.  Courage, self- belief and common sense can help to reduce technical anxiety and lighten the search for perfection, so that perception grows and takes precedence.

The group dynamic will contribute so much in these relaxed, enthusiastic sessions where you can experiment with a variety of technical and musical ideas. Enjoy this time to explore making decisions and taking control over your performance. Why not come, let go and allow the music to take over, you’ve nothing whatever to lose!

Bring up to three pieces or movements in contrasting styles.


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.
