NHL - Chromatic Weekend: July 19-20, 2008 at Alderbrook School, Solihull, Birmingham.

Back to the current Chromatic Weekend page: Chromatic Weekend

The third NHL Chromatic Weekend will be held on the weekend of the 19th and 20th July 2008. The previous location of the Solihull Music School is no longer available, but we have been fortunate in obtaining the use of the Gantry Theatre at Alderbrook School, Solihull, which is about one mile away from the previous location, so arrangements for travel and accommodation will be similar to previous years.

Course Details

We have an excellent line-up of tutors this year. Gerry Ezard and Carol Axford will teach playing technique; Harry Pitch will help you play jazz numbers well; Colin Mort will lead ensemble playing; Chris Collis will coach you on playing with an accompanist and Barbara Tate will help you with music theory and practice, and your sight-reading.

We plan to cover ensemble work (practice sheet music and CDs will be mailed out in advance), playing technique, reading music, performance and microphone technique, playing with an accompanist and with a CD backing, and harmonica repair and maintenance. Everyone from beginners to advanced players will be welcome.

We have managed to keep the cost of the weekend to £50 again (£55 for non-members of NHL), and plan a maximum of around 30 attendees, so book early!

Some feedback from last yearís attendees:

  • "Surprisingly the course catered for beginners and experts. Iím sure we all got enormous benefit from it"
  • "Thoroughly enjoyed the entire weekend"
  • "It was great that everyone actually stood up and played"
  • "I enjoyed my first attempt at playing with a piano backing"
  • "An excellent idea sending a CD and sheet music prior to the course"
