ACOUSTIC GUITAR WORKSHOP

Wednesday 21st to Saturday 24th April 2021

led by WILL McNICOL

Will McNicol, one of the finest guitarists and composers on the scene today, will be returning to la Fontenelle for the fourth time.  Course material will include breakdowns of solo pieces, with styles from South America to Europe and Asia.  Attendees will also have fun with ensemble arrangements, learning how to be an effective group player as well as getting advice on solo performance.  Practical examples of warm-up techniques will also be discussed along with useful tips and tricks to improve musicality and fluency.  Individual tutorials will also be available to cover any specific areas attendees would like to get one-to-one input on. 

The course will end with an informal concert. Whilst it caters for varying abilities, it is recommended that participants have a good grasp of acoustic guitar basics (standard chord shapes and a few fingerstyle patterns) to gain the maximum benefit from this experience.

Cost: £275 (Deposit £50)
Places are limited to 8 participants, so please apply with your deposit by 31st December, 2020
