Below are a selection of courses that we are running, based on the subject of the course you were looking for:

  • The Madness of Genius?
    How often is it said that genius is close to madness? But is there really a connection between a creative artist’s mental health and his/her creative impulse and can modern medical science shed any light on this? This day school takes on the challenge.
  • The Countertenor
    The countertenor voice has undergone a renaissance in recent decades, fuelled by the renewed interest in Baroque opera and the astonishing vocal accomplishments of the castrati. Explore the mechanics and repertoire of the countertenor voice.
  • Afro-Caribbean Music: Salsa, Calypso and Reggae
    Presented by one of the UKs most highly respected bass players, this course will attempt to explain the development of Afro-Caribbean Music, provide some listening strategies, and survey the styles of Salsa, Calypso and Reggae.
  • Exploring Wagner's Ring Cycle
    Wagner’s Ring Cycle is arguably the greatest work of art conceived by a single individual and also one of the most controversial. We will study the music drama itself but its philosophical, political, and mythological aspects will also be discussed.
  • The Passions & Oratorios of J.S. Bach
    A Day School in which Dr Richard Jones shows how Bach, whilst adhering to the liturgical oratorio-Passion genre, was strongly influenced by the theatrical Passion-oratorio genre developed in Hamburg, with its dialogue and responsorial forms.
