Classical Guitar Orchestra Weekend
A unique musical experience for classical guitarists of all ages and of varying abilities (but not complete beginners). The emphasis is on participation, with students working in a non-competitive and supportive environment. Parts of the orchestra range in difficulty from elementary (Grade 2) to advanced (Grade 8) and are allocated in accordance with each students’ playing standard.
The music required for the course will be made available one month before, to allow for some advance preparation.
Residential Fees From: £348. Non Residential: £233
Course runs from Dinner on Friday to Lunch on Sunday.
