    feel more at ease when it comes to playing and learning during the workshops which start in earnest on the Saturday morning We gradually get you playing on the Friday to get you warmed up both before and after dinner and we do a lot of talking to find out what each of you wants to get from the weekend Playing usually goes on till midnight but this is not essential as Saturday is a long busy day The Saturday consists of workshops throughout the day 9 15 till 5 30 based around the specific techniques and knowledge required for the style of weekend you are attending With breaks during the day for coffee lunch and afternoon tea We then have personal time till dinner at 7pm after which we continue with a project where we split the group and each part learns a tune to be played and recorded Some want to learn specific techniques others just want a chance to play The weekend is a balance of structured workshops projects organised jam sessions and relaxation On the Saturday evening after dinner we do like to split the group into two or more smaller groups Each group will then learn and present a simple tune or song after spending time preparing and arranging who does what and using some of the principles and techniques learned during the day We have people of all ages and all abilities on our weekends and I make it a point to put people at ease It s quite daunting to come away and join folks you don t know I know because I m in the same position as you just a bedroom player with a lot to learn It is fun to work with others and certainly improves your ability so do
