February 24th at 18:30 to February 28th at 13:30

Develop your jazz playing. How about 5 times British Award winning saxophonist Alan Barnes as Tutor? You need to be able to read music, understand chords and preferably have rehearsal band experience. Limited spaces with, this year, a special opportunity to attend a secret Alan Barnes cellar gig (in Hexham*)!

(The Great) Alan Barnes (Bedfordshire  www.highamhall.com/alan-barnes)

Residential: £475 Non-residential: £335 (admission to cellar gig not included)

*The ‘secret’ evening gig planned for Tue 26 Feb 2019 is an idea we thought we’d try and we hope to put on at a new little venue below the art shop of one of our Tutors (Ben Haslam), who has offered the venue generously at no fee, so, after covering nominal fees for the rehearsal band, we can raise a little money for a good cause of Alan’s choice. This will be an intimate gig and should be an enjoyable little interlude on this course. We intend to take the minibus over to Hexham for the evening with course members who wish to go.

Final details will be given to members on the course. You may also find Ben’s website will be helpful closer to the time in spreading the word to attract an audience. (capacity is only 60, so it’ll be a cosy affair!).
