Understanding Classical Music with Mike Smith November 5 – 12

This course is designed for those who want to learn more about the music itself, why it works, and how to truly appreciate and enjoy it. Designed for all levels of music knowledge or experience, during this week we will explore and open up the music. Mike teaches enjoyment of it through a deeper understanding of not only the music itself, but through the influence of individual performers and conductors. The course is undertaken in an informal, inclusive and entertaining environment and is structured in daily workshops lasting around 3 hours.
