Five day summer course with Dave Hall – Intermediate – one place left

20 July 2020 @ 10:00 am - 24 July 2020 @ 3:30 pm

This course is designed for anyone between grade 3 and grade 7, and will be run over a 5 day period.

This course is being run by David Hall (FRCO, MA Cantab), who is one of our most popular tutors at Finchcocks, and was recently described by the Sunday Times when they joined us on a Finchcocks piano course, as a “musical powerhouse”.

Dave’s 5 day course is designed to be rounded, immersive, inspiring, and most of all fun.

The formal sessions will include a combination of masterclasses that help develop performance skills, workshops that help develop technique and individual tuition.

The workshop sessions will cover practice techniques, sight-reading, pedalling, improvisation and practical theory. Everyone will get the chance to accompany a singer or instrumentalist, and we’ll also run a few duet sessions.

As usual, everyone will have access to their own grand piano for the week including our new Steinway, and have plenty of time to practice in our vaulted recital rooms.

We’ll also have a bit of fun. In addition to a private recital in the hall of the main house, we’ll explore the private gardens at Finchcocks, go for a local wine tasting, try out the local Finchcocks beer and have an organ lesson (hands and feet!).
