Info for Halsway

Useful Things to Know

This is the course page! I’ll be uploading bits of information here for you to see. Helpful bits and pieces. If you’re booked on hopefully you’ll find it useful. If you’re not booked on yet, maybe it will help whet your appetite!

Arrival is from 4pm on Friday, but nothing is scheduled until after dinner.

A group of us are staying Sunday night – get yourself booked in if you’d like to stay.

Jonny usually does a walk or two up the hill. He usually does two – Saturday after Fika and Sunday morning. There is likely to be a third walk after the course finishes at 4pm on Sunday – weather permitting. You will need walking boots, it’s likely to be muddy!

I’ve made a WhatsApp group for people to keep in contact. Send me an email and I will send you the link.

I’ve made a page with some of the popular tunes from the bar

Things to bring:
• Recording device
• Pencil
• Tablet if you’d like to read dots
• Walking Boots if you’d like to walk up the hill
• All bedding is provided
• Bring your own soap!

About the Teaching
• The groups are split into slower, medium and fast. You get to choose which group you go in. It is fine to swap groups – be aware the tutors may be teaching the same tunes to each group.
• There may or may not be music provided in advance, if there is it might be emailed for you to print out before you arrive. The teaching will mostly be by ear – if you know you want the music in advance get in touch so I can organise that.

The Halsway Parade
This is the tune we play on the Sunday afternoon as we go out into the garden to the mosaic. To brush up on it, visit the teaching page over in the Virtual Music Room.

If you are catching the train to Halsway and would like to be picked up from the station get in touch.

This year it’s the turn of the Hunkypunk. Everyone gets a badge if they want one. (I usually ask for a donation of 50p them.) Everyone needs to just confirm names before I make them!
