We are delighted to announce our new programme of music holidays for the 2012 season. Building on the success of 2011 we have extended the range of our guitar holidays so that we offer something for everyone.
We kick off the year with our brand new Beginners Guitar Course - 9-14 April. This course is aimed at anyone who might be struggling for some inspiration at home or looking to refresh the basics and enjoy learning to play with others. You can be sure that after a week here with Richard you will go home feeling much more confident and with the skills to strum a few of your favorite tunes. More Info
Our second guitar course is the revamped Electric Blues Course - 1-7 July. Richard has rewritten this course for a level two player for this year so that you can really push the boundaries of your playing. The added bonus this year is that the week coincides with the Cognac Blues Festival and so we will be going into to town to catch some live music during the week. More Info
We have relaunched our extremely popular Complete Acoustic Course - 26 Aug - 1 Sept during the beautiful summer. A perfect time of year to enjoy the sunshine and the pool while having the opportunity to learn and play the guitar with Richard and students. More Info
We are also introducing three more new guitar courses this year:
We are happy to have our new tutor Paul Vernon Chester joining us this year who will be providing us with the Gypsy Jazz Course - 13-19 May. Paul is one of the foremost exponents of the gypsy jazz genre. He is a superb performer and a committed and talented teacher. We are delighted that he has joined us to run a gypsy jazz week.

We bring you a really special week with Diane Ponzio, a talented singer-songwriter who will be Singing and Strumming - 20-26 May. Diane travels the world doing concerts, giving singing and playing workshops and is also an ambassador for Martin guitars. If you would love to improve and gain confidence singing while you play your guitar then don't miss this week! More Info
Richard Perkins joins us for a final course of the year with his Band Performance Course - 28 Oct - 3 Nov. This is a chance to spend the whole week developing your playing with a full band. The week will be spent performing wall to wall music, playing the tunes you want to learn! More Info
