Join Stewart in the beautiful surroundings of Ushaw College in Durham, for a weekend of intensive tuition. Courses are open to proficient players of any instrument (including transposing instruments) who possess good to high technical competence. Workshops focus on regional styles and repertoire or compositions by a particular folk musician. Participants may have some of the following experience and skills:
- – playing folk tunes at dance tempo
- – attending folk music sessions and joining in or leading sets of tunes
- – playing for dancing and/or in concert bands
- – teaching music
- – attending other advanced tutorials/workshops
The workshop will typically take between 8 and 12 people from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. All tuition, resources, accommodation, food and daytime refreshments are included. Sheet music and mp3 files of the tunes covered are sent out in advance, and recordings of exercises from the course are sent on to you afterwards.
