Traditional music classes - Gun & Spitroast, Horsmonden


Recommended Posts

We've decided to set up a regular class and session for people who would like to play but who don't yet feel confident enough to join a session. If that sounds like you, please come along.

 

Traditional music classes

 

Learn to play traditional tunes for music sessions and dancing in the company of other beginners. Play slowly and practice whatever's causing difficulty for you.

 

Join multi-instrumentalist Gavin Atkin at the Gun & Spitroast pub at Horsmonden, Kent (TN12 8HT) on the SECOND and FOURTH Wednesdays of each month from now until the summer, starting at 8pm. We'll have a class for an hour and a half, followed by whatever playing people feel like, or even just chatting. Admission is free. Typical instruments might be melodeon, fiddle, concertina, mandolin, whistle or banjo, but we'll be just as happy if you pitch up with a triangle, a saxophone or a piano. Reading music isn't necessary, though it definitely helps!

 

The first class and session starts at 8pm on November 24th. Please tell your friends and especially anyone who's starting to play and needs to know!

 

For information, call Gavin Atkin on 07985 522734

Btw - If you are coming, please let me know so I have some clue - and particularly if you're going to need me to give you sheet music to take away!

 

Cheers, Gavin

The kind of music on your website - traditional sea or boaters songs.

 

Barry - I'll try to remember your request. What kind of thing are you thinking of?

Ah - so you'd like a bit of analysis about how I play them... I'll have a shed-load of Youtubes to make for the session/dance tunes classes, but we'll see what we can do some time!

Just a little reminder that these classes start tomorrow evening at 8pm, and that if you're not a learner we'll be delighted to have experienced players drop in for a bit of a sesh from 9.30pm or so.
