Join John Sandford for five days of group singing tuition, learning traditional songs and techniques.
You will receive three hours of singing tuition with a group of other students. You will also have the opportunity to take part in an optional 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.
