Join Ed Boyd (TBC) for five days of group guitar tuition, learning traditional tunes and techniques.
You will receive three hours of instrumental tuition with a small group of other students of a similar standard. You will also have the opportunity to take part in a large mixed instrument ensemble, where you will learn to play exciting arrangements of traditional tunes with other musicians.
Classes take place between 10:00 – 16:15 each day, with a one hour break for lunch.
All ages and abilities welcome. Classes will be centred on learning tunes by ear, so there is no need to read music.
