Event description

Description

Have you acquired an instrument and set out on the rewarding journey of learning to play, only to stall?  Kick Start is a short woodwind course which aims to provide the assistance and inspiration to help adult learners move forward again.

If any – or all – of the following apply to you, then consider signing up for Kick Start:

  • I’m struggling to produce an attractive or consistent sound
  • I’m not very confident about reading music
  • I’d like to start playing again but feel I’ve forgotten everything and would appreciate some enjoyable and supportive input to jolt me back into action.

The course involves four 2-hour Wednesday evening group tuition sessions, from 6:15 - 8:15pm on 14, 21, 28 September and 5th October, plus a single attendance at any easy-level Blow & Blast ensemble workshop to round off the experience.

The course covers:

  • Tone production and basic technique
  • Elementary theory and musicianship
  • Introduction to playing in a small ensemble

The second hour of each session will overlap with a corresponding flute/oboe/bassoon course, allowing the two groups to work together, consolidating their skills while playing in a basic-level mixed ensemble – this part of the session is fun and extremely motivating!  It also acts as a preparation for attending your first real Blow & Blast woodwind workshop.

Many so-called ‘easy’ courses end up catering for those who are already well underway.  Kick Start aims to include plenty of consolidation at a basic level, to help very-early-stage players to progress with confidence.

Please note: this course is for adult learners only.  You will need your own instrument.
