STANDARD: UPPER INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED

A weekend course focusing solely on the bass clarinet. There will be quartets and a bass clarinet choir. What a sound! There will also be an opportunity to play a solo, either unaccompanied or with piano (repertoire suggestions provided if you wish by Ian). All participants should have reasonable competence on the instrument - upper intermediate (minimum grade 6-8) to advanced. There just may be a little bass clef to tackle, plus some (intentional, we hope) high notes floating around. Whilst low C instruments would be very nice indeed, we would not dream of excluding shorter colleagues. Tutors will give a short recital during the course, and look forward to sharing their bass knowledge with you in a relaxed but intensive bass clarinet weekend. The course ends with an informal play through of the repertoire worked on. Parts will be supplied in advance of the course to allow time for preparation.
