The workshops

The workshops typically take between 6 & 10 people for three days of instruction under the guidance of professional tutors. The cost covers all food, tuition, refreshments and overnight accommodation, in en-suite rooms. The cost of each course is available against the event in the diary.  Everything is provided by way of meals and refreshments, so no need to spend another penny on anything once you are here. Vegan and vegetarian diets are catered for, as are Lactose and gluten intolerance, as long as we are notified in advance.

There are on average 6 hours of workshops daily with individual one to one tuition on the week course. Dinner is followed each evening by an informal session led by the course tutor. These help reinforce the techniques learned during the day, hear and learn new tunes and teach others some of your own favorites. Guest musicians often join us during these sessions.

Your tutor is available to you from breakfast until bed-time.for questions and advice.
