The music camps are for anyone who can or wants to participate in music. This can accommodate students of all levels - from beginners to advanced, and of a range of styles from classical to rock. Music sessions are generally in a group format, although solo lessons in some cases will be considered, depending on enrolments.
Duration The camps may last from 3 day weekend (Friday-Sunday) or 5 day (Monday-Friday) and will commence
Day one of the camps involve enrolments, group assignments, timetable, and a workshop of the aims of the camp. The playing sessions start as soon as possible after that.
Days 2- the final day include:
cooked or continental breakfast from 7.30am
lessons & workshops from 8 am-12noon
lunch provided (12 noon) · free time in afternoon for the electives and practise
cooked evening meal at 7pm with music provided by teachers and students
evening performance sessions may occur
The last evening/afternoon will involve a concert for all participants (optional). We would like everyone to perform, even if in a group. This gives you something to aim for during the sessions. Group performance is encouraged. Solo performance is optional - we realize that performance is stressful, and will provide every encouragement.
Students should arrange to bring their own instrument(s) and arrive on day one to be prepared for lessons to start in the afternoon.
Instruments will be available for sale or hire. Orders should be should be made on booking.
Students will be assigned to a teacher in a group with other students of similar interests and abilities. The exact assignment of the groups will depend on the students that enrol. This will be determined on day one. In most cases we would expect to have some idea of the level of students when they enrol to assist the planning.
Evening meal & performances The evening meals are a highlight at the local lodges. The cuisine is superb, and the company always pleasant. Lyn, your host at High Plains Providors, has a unique ability to make everyone feel at home. Added to this will be live music from the teachers and students. They can sit back and relax, and take notes - or maybe do better.
Styles of music offered - a range of musical styles will be taught - from classical, jazz, rock and pop. See www.bachroq.com for a range of music that is offered.
Sheet music will also be provided at the camp but students are encouraged to contribute music to the classes. We encourage groups to suggest a syllabus as soon as possible after enrolment.
