While largely focused on the wind quintet and decet repertoire, this popular course has evolved to introduce more unusual instrumental combinations as well. Applications are therefore encouraged from those who wish to offer an additional instrument such as piccolo, cor anglais, bass clarinet or contra bassoon, and every effort will be made to accommodate such in the repertoire provided (notification of additional instrument/s is required at time of application). Specialist coaches, each highly regarded in their field, come with a wealth of experience to help you achieve your musical goals. The aim of the course is to encourage and develop an understanding of the processes of musical development, technically and musically, within the context of ensemble playing, while being introduced to varied and stimulating repertoire. There is opportunity to discuss instrument specific issues in specialist classes led by each tutor over the course of the weekend.
