Check out and departure

Evening concerts at the end of each day are followed by nightly jam sessions which provide opportunities to listen and play with others. The week culminates with a final public concert in which students and teachers participate.

The Programme

Morning workshops

At the beginning of each day, students on all the courses come together to participate in a unique sequence of activities which collectively stimulate self-awareness and enhance creativity.

Alexander Technique - by Val Keogh

Many performing artists find the Technique an invaluable way of fine-tuning their posture and movement. These introductory classes concentrate on the relationship of the head and neck to the rest of the body. The physical and mental exercises help promote a sense of rediscovery and ease in day-to-day activities, and especially in music-making.

Pulse Training - by Stephen Keogh

Pulse lies at the heart of music, and developing one's own inner pulse is the goal of these sessions. The work fosters awareness – of the pulse, of silence, of the other members of the group. This workshop is hugely beneficial to musicians of every kind.

Samba - Felix Gibbons Percussion, and Guillermo Rozenthuler, Voice

A group workshop in which we train and learn the various different calls and rhythms, under the guidance of Felix Gibbons, the singers will learn some of the traditional songs as performed at the carnivals of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo. On the last day of the course there will be an open air public performance during which we will bring the joy and the spirit of carnival to Krk. Every night at the jam sessions there will be opportunities to play Samba Cançao in a small group setting.

Each morning there will be a session of Alexander Technique. These sessions are included in the price of the course. Val will also be available to teach private classes to anyone who wishes during the week. There will be a charge of 30 Euros per private lesson. Private lessons should be arranged with Val and the fee is payable directly to him.
