This workshop will be running for 3 days, between Monday 5th and Wednesday 7th of August. It will include composing, conducting and improvising, and will also include the opportunity to work on a jazz standard. The course will be run by Nicky Catterwell (Woodwind, Cello), Mischa Bray (Violin and Guitar) and Mike Kent-Davies (Brass, Piano). The course is for musicians with Grade 3 or above standard, and depending on the instruments attending, pieces will be arranged to suit the players and their abilities.
The course will start each day at 10:30 and finish at 16:30 at our shop in Tunbridge Wells. There will be approximately 1 hour for breaks during the day. Under 16 will need written authorisation if they are permitted to leave the building during breaks - they will be supervised at all times.
This course is aimed at students who are at Grade 3 theory level or above. The outcome is to prepare students to take the Grade 5 Theory exam in November, 2019. The course will include lots of written theory, and instruction to cover the syllabus of the exam. The course will be run by Nicky Catterwell and Paula Taylor - both teachers at Brittens Music School. There will be a chance to take a follow up marked paper nearer to the exam date.
The course will run from the 27th to the 30th of August, 2019 at our Music School, in Tunbridge Wells between 10:30 and 16:30 for FOUR days. There will be an hour for lunch each day. Under 16 will need written authorisation if they are permitted to leave the building during breaks - they will be supervised at all times.
