A Baroque chamber music course for both individual players and pre-formed groups, preferably on instruments at A415, although it may be possible to accommodate a group at A440. Experts in their field, Theresa (violin and cornett) and Alastair (harpsichord and organ) will help, encourage and cajole you to greater stylishness in your performance of 17th and 18th century music.
The weekend will be spent working in small groups, pre-formed or put together by the tutors and at least one session will be spent with everyone playing together.
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.
