We are offering 9 weekend coaching sessions this season. There will be one workshop per month September - June, excluding December. One coach will be featured each month, and will share his or her time equally between the two groups, so there will be a lot of individual attention for each group. The workshop will begin with registration at 9:30 on the Saturday morning and will run through till 5:00 on Sunday afternoon. For a more detailed breakdown of each day see the Daily Schedule.
When there are two groups, we have a little pod at the end of the day, where each group can meet in the main music studio and play for each other in a relaxed mini masterclass situation.
We suggest applying preformed where possible, but all applications will be considered. Since it is a small workshop, we may not always be able to guarantee the right combination of players, so the planned assignments may sometimes be subject to change at times, depending on applications. If your first choice workshop is full, then you can always opt to apply for one of the other weekend workshops if you would like. We also have a waiting list.
We can accommodate a maximum of 8-12 participants for each chamber music workshop. However, for the American Bluegrass fiddling workshop, all the players will be working together as a group that is not dependent on the right instrument combos, therefore this workshop can accept 16 participants.
There will be an informal optional soup & wine gathering on the Friday evening before each workshop weekend. Please let us know on the application if you will join us. Healthy snacks will be provided throughout the day.
