It is however, not suitable for complete beginners. A focal point of the weekend will be the guitar orchestra but there will also be coaching for smaller ensembles such as guitar duo and trio. For applicants without a playing partner there will be an opportunity to form a duo etc and suitable pairings can be organised in advanced of the course. The weekend culminates with a students’ concert on Sunday afternoon.
