There will be optional teacher led group classes and one-to-one tuition during the week. These sessions will consist of morning group classes and afternoon one-to-one slots plus occasional workshops on different techniques, theory etc. Classes will be aimed at beginner/intermediate abilities and will be structured to be fun, inclusive experiences with lots of group playing. The main focus of the week will be on playing with others, sharing skills, tips and tricks and improving your ability and repertoire. Tuition and guidance comes from Stuart Marshall and guest tutor Paul Nicholas.
