Our Get Your Folk On! Summer School offers young musicians the chance to:
- play music by ear - no sheet music here! - explore harmonies, riffs, chord sequences and folk techniques - create arrangements in small and big bands - sing and explore folk song history and culture - try new instruments or dance forms - gain performance skills with final sharing events
This friendly and flexible course gives you the space to develop your skills, learn something new and play with other young musicians.
For all instrumentalists – whether you’re able to play a basic tune (so not an absolute beginner), or are more advanced and looking for new challenges.
No folk experience is necessary, and all instruments are welcome.
You can achieve your Bronze Arts Award as part of this course.
This is a five-day course and will run from Monday to Friday, 10.30am-4.30pm
