Description of the training courses

Violin training courses offered by 3 renowned teachers: Alasdair Fraser, Liette Remon et Jean-Marie Verret.

Participants, when registering for the training courses, choose their level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) based on their degree of experience and comfort in a learning context.

  • Beginner: I know 5 trad pieces and I can play them from memory at a slow pace.
  • Intermediate: I know 15 trad pieces and can play them from memory at a moderate pace.
  • Advanced: I know a large number of traditional pieces and can play them from memory at a normal, or even fast, pace.

Each workshop session (1 hour 15 minutes per session) divides the 3 groups into 3 different rooms and assigns a teacher to each. From one workshop to another, and from one day to the next, the teachers will take turns teaching the three groups, allowing the participants, regardless of their level, to benefit twice from a wide variety of teachings, repertoires, approaches, and techniques, and to have a complete experience.

As a bonus, workshop participants can assist to Thursday night’s concert followed by a jam session. Friday, a follow-up on tunes learned by different groups will be done, reuniting all workshop participants.

An instrument depot will be available to all persons subscribed to the workshops.
