FolkActive Youth Ensemble

New for 2019, we are delighted to announce the launch of the FolkActive Youth Ensemble, a new group aimed at intermediate (grade 3+) violin, viola, cello and double-bass players, led by Chris Nichols of Threepenny Bit

Tunes will be taught by ear and then used to explore the stylistic details in the playing of folk music as well as spontaneous use of harmony and variation, in both small and large groups. There will be a tune book for children to take home as well as handouts with extra music covered.

Sessions will run once a month on a Sunday, 10am to 1pm with a break for snacks.

Spring Term:
13th January, 10th February, 10th March 2019

Summer Term:
12th May, 16th June, 14th July 2019

Richard Taunton Sixth Form College
Studio 5 (Room 402/404), Hill Lane, Southampton, SO15 5RL
