ABOUT THE COURSE:
This is a 5 day workshop running from SUNDAY the 27th (meeting in the afternoon) till SATURDAY the 2nd (after breakfast).

This workshop will be based around two things, jamming and repertoire. It’s for those that have the basics down but want to explore playing more with others in an informal jam or campfire environment. We’ll be looking at easy songs to jam out in a campfire situation and at how to join in with complimentary parts. We'll also look at improvisation skills and increasing vocabulary. There will be some classes on technique and theory basics that will help with the jamming!

The plan is to do a couple of hours lessons in the mornings and then students should be out jamming in the garden behind our hotel, we’ll be encouraging you to jam as much as you can. Late in the afternoon will be a group jam for an hour where we will all sit together, jam, sing and have fun in an informal lesson. Class size is a maximum of 12 people.
