Expansion

EXPANSION 2018

Lunnevad College (lunnevad.se) is situated in the tranquil countryside next to a small river, suitable for canoeing. There are bikes for everyone, would you wish to explore the surroundings if not by foot. Single rooms, a proper restaurant serving three meals/day as well as afternoon coffee&cake and evening sandwiches, and plenty of space for individual practising and socialising make perfect settings for creative work. We spend a week on how to enhance beauty and expand on musical expression. For this, technique is needed just as much as personal imagination. Technique is the essence of EXPANSION.

Everyone receives two individual lessons as well as lectures on various fundamental cello topics.

We end the day with cello ensemble as part of the preparations of our public ensemble concert in the city of Norrköping. Sandwiches awaits in the kitchen of our lodgings – which may be devoured in front of the wide-screen TV downstairs next to the sauna and snooker-table room, if you so wish.

Participants: minimum age 16. The course fee, £450, covers tuition as well as Room&Board. The application dead-line is June 10, but for planning reasons I follow first-come-first-served. This year I am aiming for 8 participants, possibly 10. For any other questions, simply contact me via email on cellolid@aol.com

Warm greetings
