Event Details

American Music & Ukulele Week–May 4 to 11, 2019

Our week in May, 2019 also welcomes back Kate Lissauer and Lucy Ray as they present their popular Duet Harmony Group Singing Class, a great group experience which everyone is encouraged to participate in. There’s nothing quite like the whole studio classroom filled with song!

Johnny Whelan offers a banjo class, the subject matter of which will be determined by its participants.  Johnny has a unique style that incorporates both clawhammer and old-time fingerpicking styles, and he has given classes in both, as well as beginning banjo and individual tuition.

Depending on the needs and requests of this week’s participants, Kate will also offer fiddle and banjo classes.

A special bonus addition to the curriculum will be Rose Ardron’s individual singing coaching and group class on individual singing, and no, that is not a contradiction!  She will hold a group that focuses on the issue, challenges, and individuality of singing.

In addition, our guest teachers may offer classes on their favourite topics, such as various banjo styles, beginners’ instrumental or singing with your instrument.  In fact, you can request tuition in any topic related to American music, and we will  do our best to accommodate you.

The price is £650 for those who want accommodation at the Casa de la Abuela.  Here, rooms may be shared with more than one other person, or may be described as semi-private for other reasons.  Bathroom facilities are shared. For the price of £750, accommodation is in a luxury en suite double or twin room at Casona Granado.  The Casona is within 30 minutes’ walking distance of the Casa, and this package also includes transport to and from the Casa site whenever required.  These prices cover everything  for the week apart from travel and transfers.  This includes accommodation and meals, tuition, and use of all facilities.  We will arrange your transfers at the lowest possible prices.

A £50 discount is available to those who chose to camp on site.  We provide tents, mattresses and bedding, and you chose your site on (or off) the grounds.  Many people prefer this option, as it allows for greater privacy and enjoyment of nature.
