The group sessions are the centerpiece of the weekend, but there’s also plenty of free time built into the schedule, for whatever you want to use it for: hanging out and relaxing, practicing on your own, getting together with me for individual attention if you like, jamming with your fellow campers or whatever. And fun musical stuff every evening.
We do four two-and-half-hour group sessions over the weekend, two each day (with breaks as needed!), plenty of time for going deep as a group into all the topics we want to explore: improving technique, getting better tone, developing one’s ear and musical instincts, creating interesting arrangements, and whatever else we choose to tackle. I come in with material prepared based on my past experience leading group workshops, but I’m also ready and willing to go off in other directions depending on what folks want and need.
(And just to be clear: we’re using the word “camp” here, but Robinwood is actually a comfy retreat in a comfy retreat center, with nice hotel-style private rooms in the same building as the group sessions and the dining hall, and the food’s excellent – no roughing it here!)
