Venue: Pangbourne College
The emphasis on the Junior Course is that cello playing is FUN. We dedicate staff members specifically to this course in order that they build special rapport with the children. These teachers work on all areas of musicianship and cello playing in order to ensure a sound musical and technical foundation at this very important stage of learning. Members of our pastoral care staff look after the children at all times to make sure they are happy and making friends.
Students should bring a short piece they have studied recently.
The course includes:
• Cello orchestra
• Technique & scales sessions in small groups
• Improvisation workshop
• Ensemble playing
• Masterclass workshop
• Performance opportunities
• Video analysis
Pastoral staff see to the needs of the young students in their recreation time and to help them to travel between lessons. Pool sessions for residential students are allocated each day and there will also be a day-time pool session for non-residential students, always under the supervision of Pangbourne College's professional lifeguards.
