Do you have enough experience to attend?

Most of my workshops are geared towards intermediate to advanced musicians. However, this is quite flexible. There are beginners with natural flair and also people who have learnt for many years but who find that new rhythms and tunes can take a long time to learn. If you play another instrument you may also find it possible to join in. I often tell students to try not to feel they have to grasp everything, but to just learn what they can and have the patience and open-mindedness to know that given time and study all may come. But if you have not played before, then please arrange a 1:1 class or a chat with me on the phone before you pay your deposit.

Many thanks,
