Watercolour Music - 2017 Residential Guitar Workshop Weekend Sept 29th - 2nd Oct

Following the initial workshops, we are delighted to announce the dates for this year’s event.  An intensive but relaxed weekend in the stunning surroundings of Scotland’s West Highlands with the undivided attention of two stellar guitar tutors – John Goldie and Peter Kroll-Ploeger.
There are limited places on this special weekend – two classes of at most eight players brings the setting closer to the mentoring process pioneered in the US. Students will arrive on Friday evening with a relaxed meet-and-greet, followed by intensive tutored sessions through the day on Saturday and Sunday, and a tutors’ and guests’ concert on the Sunday night. Monday will be a slower paced wind down with an informal recording tip sheet session.
We can provide an inclusive package of guitar weekend and half board accommodation or just guitar weekend with attendees making their own accommodation arrangements. Transport is inclusive throughout the weekend - so once you are here you are only concentrating on guitar playing. The weekend is designed to give attendees the time and space needed to invest in their musical passion, unhampered by the usual interruptions and distractions of home and work. The workshops will be tailored to the abilities of participants, aimed at all levels of musician who want to learn new skills and increase their confidence in a group situation.
Watercolour Music specialises in creating a relaxed, supportive and inspiring environment, and the course will be the perfect retreat for guests to be able to concentrate on improving various aspects of their music and performance in the beautiful, peaceful location of Ardgour. The emphasis is on an informal atmosphere which incorporates structured activity in a supportive learning environment. We also intend to include the extremely popular evening's cruise down Loch Shiel on Jim Michie’s MV Sileas. This has usually preceded the tutors concert FaceTime with the tutors includes at least 8 hours of tutor-led group teaching sessions designed to bring out the best in your abilities. It won’t all be challenging work though - there will also be opportunities for a session with the other players, and of course the chance to spend some quality time ‘alone’ with your instrument!
We also encourage open-mic policy on the Sunday night tutors concert - a friendly, supportive environment in which to air your favourite songs or tune to the group and local audience, join in on an impromptu jam session, or just to sit back and enjoy the music.
