Chris and I will be giving a Classical Guitar Course this summer at the Chanterelle Music Centre, France. Set in beautiful countryside, Chanterelle is in the Poitou Charente in Southwest France. It is in two small farms (fermettes) that have been joined together to create space for music making.

This small and exclusive course runs from the 23 – 29 August 2009 and gives participants opportunity for intensive study with the Duo.

Participants can attend as soloists, or ensemble players and the daily timetable will include:
* solo and small ensemble coaching sessions
* technical workshops
* warm-ups and finger aerobics
* daily guitar orchestra rehearsals

You can also take a look at the brochure for full details by downloading it here.
