courses & workshops
Next October course: probably 30, 31st October 2021.
This is of course subject to developments in the Covid19 pandemic. If we do have to cancel, we expect to be able to fully refund any bookings made. However, booking will start much later in the year to minimise the administration involved. Please watch this space and any announcements made on our social media platforms.
There will be a different guest tutor each day. We design the timetable with a focus on continuity throughout the three days to maximise personal development. Ensembles are coached, with sessions 2 and 3 developing work done in session 1.
Advanced players - included workshops/masterclasses with our guest tutors. Individual lessons for those on Gold or Platinum packages.
Intermediate Adults is always a parallel course for less advanced adult players. Workshops on technique (basic or other), pieces, ensemble playing, whatever is needed. Individual lessons if booked on Gold or Platinum packages.
Juniors: In a more fun style for kids, mini masterclasses, ensembles, games, improvisation, workshops on flute technique and much more. The Junior course is run by Holly Cook.
WhizzKidz is for youngsters in their early teens or even younger who have passed high Grades or Diplomas. They are stretched, with extra workshops, scales workouts, a chance to meet our guest artists, individual lessons or the opportunity of a masterclass (places limited) if booked on the Gold package, and more.
We always encourage people to just ask if they are unsure about which course is right for them.
For all: Each day includes some ensemble-playing and/or flute choir, workshops and masterclasses, opportunities to play with the piano (with Simon Gilliver), a lunchtime concert by our guest artist and a flute shop will be there with lots of music, flutes and accessories to try and buy!...and much, much more....
An ongoing programme of live-online tuition throughout the year, which has proved very popular. It's a smallish, very supportive and friendly group. Warm ups twice a week, tutorials, themed months, guest tutors, informal performance opportunities for all, a newsletter and more. Why not give us a try with a free session? See the eflute website for all the details.
