12th – 14th July 2019.
Ushaw College, Durham, DH7 9RH
Join Stewart in the beautiful surroundings of Ushaw College in Durham, for a weekend of intensive tuition. This workshop will focus on compositions by Stewart himself, with a chance to learn some of his traditional style tunes, their groove and nuances. Advanced Courses are open to proficient players of any instrument (including transposing instruments) who possess good to high technical competence. 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.
Places on Advanced courses are available on application. For further information or to express your interest in this course, please email Ali (firstname.lastname@example.org)
