Strings & Things Part 2
with Elizabeth Turnbull
Thursday 16 August – Sunday 19 August 2018
Three Day Course
Course No. 3293
This course is aimed specifically at amateur string players who are searching for the opportunity to experience intensive and detailed rehearsal on string repertoire. There is no sight reading required as all music is sent out in advance.
Attention will be given to working in detail on issues such as ensemble, articulation, rhythm, intonation and style. Seating will be rotated in order to give everyone the chance to understand the different roles in ensemble playing.
This ensemble course requires a balance of instruments; please contact us for further information and the current availability of places.
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.
