COVID 19 UPDATE
Junior Day – July 30th 2020
Due to the on-going Coronavirus situation, we have sadly reached the conclusion that this year’s Junior Day will have to be cancelled, due to the nature of the event. If you have paid for the course already you will be entitled to a full refund. Please do check back in the new year for details of next year’s course.
Advanced Course 2020
This Residential Course is moving On-Line!
Due to the Coronavirus situation, we are sadly now unable to offer our planned Residential course at Owlpen Manor. Whilst this is disappointing news for everyone, we are instead offering an exciting ‘Online Edition’ of our Advanced Course.
Taking place over four days in August, the course will allow students to explore advanced techniques and repertoire from the comfort of their own homes. Flexible and part time options for participation are offered to avoid ‘screen fatigue’, and students will be encouraged to video performances ahead of classes where possible. Accompaniments to ‘play along to’ at home can be supplied in advance, from our resident Woodhouse keyboard player Robin Bigwood.
Dates: Monday 10th – Thursday 13th August
