What’s it like to go to traditional music week or weekend schools?
I am starting to think that next year we may dare to try Beauly or some other venue where we can ‘up our game’ on fiddle/keyboard, such as the Durham school at the Sage Centre, Gateshead. We’re not very good, but we’re not the ‘absolute beginners’ that are ruled out. But we’re pretty terrified - what can one expect? I’m interested in hearing any experiences from Sessioneers who’ve been to instrumental-improvement summer schools, camps or hells. How best to prepare? What mistakes to avoid, social and musical.
Just something to fill in the blank prospect at present blinding me.
What’s it *like* (she asked, quivering)?
