Each day there will be a morning warm-up session covering various aspects of technique, followed by masterclass sessions, as well as a variety of classes including orchestral and ensemble playing, plus an individual coaching session with piano. During the week there will be an afternoon of “Problem Solving” away from the flute, run by the Outdoor Education Centre (you will need waterproof outdoor clothing and suitable footwear). The emphasis of the Summer School is to create a balance between learning and fun!
There will be two concerts in Llangenny Village Hall as part of the Summer School. On Monday evening Sarah and Zoe will give a recital and on Friday evening there will a concert given by the students, which will feature both solos and ensemble pieces, reflecting the work done over the week.
Participants should arrive for a light lunch at 1pm on the Monday, ready for a class in which everyone will play at 2pm; departure will be after breakfast on the Saturday.
The minimum age for participants is 16. The recommended level is Grade 8 plus, although players approaching this level are welcome to apply.
The ethos for the course is one of hard work and fun, with a supportive atmosphere from staff and all participants. Food is plentiful, and we have a regular supply of delicious cakes to keep teachers and students going!
