What a weekend! We did it again, we filled Halsway Manor with nyckelharpas! 45 of us split into four groups. I'd like to thank everyone for coming and look forward to another great year next year.
Talking of next year - we have three courses at Halsway Manor and they're all starting to fill up.
The Beginners weekend is nearly full, in fact I expect to be able to close bookings on this in the next week or two and open up a waiting list.For September 2018 there are going to be no complete beginners needing instrument spaces - so March is the date for your diary! If you want the final space, then get in touch asap!
The June course is a weekday course and is slightly longer. The focus will be on technique and there will be time for more individual teaching time and maybe even a walk up to the top of the hill. This course will be much more bespoke for each participant, so even if you don't feel you're quite advanced yet but you feel you could benefit from this week then don't be put off. I will differentiate for each learner. (I'll also let you know if I think March is a better fit for you). This course is also about half filled, so get in touch if you want your name on that list!
Bookings are already starting for September - so if you're after that elusive single room with ensuite bathroom - it's best to get on the phone to Halsway! At the moment I have asked Josefina to come back again for a second year, but the second tutor is yet to be agreed.... watch this space!
