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.
