Courses - Easter Basses 2017

Easter Basses 2017
A short course for younger players

March/April 2017

Yorke Trust Creake Centre in North Norfolk.

The aim of the course is to encourage younger members or possible new members to come to a select gathering before the Summer School and meet bassists who already know the set up and ethos of Bass Club.

This course will be for less-experienced players, where special attention can be given to strengthen technique and develop confidence and self-reliance in a nurturing environment while having a lot of fun.

This will be an excellent opportunity to engage in performing skills and for younger members to become aware of the possibilities of the bass. There will be an opportunity to perform a piece in an open class.

There will also be a pizza-making party and a visit to the beach and the chocolate shop!

If parents are interested in spending a few days in Norfolk during the course this can be a very nice thing to do. There are several cottages available to rent in the village, or Wells is also popular. Ketts Country cottages are also very good.

The Yorke Trust Centre is the spiritual home of the Bass Club. The Yorke Trust was originally the umbrella organisation for the Yorke Mini Bass Project, which started 30 years ago to enable young players to begin the double bass with specially commissioned small double basses.

The cost of the course will be approximately £150.
