GENERAL COURSE INFORMATION  


Ability level and numbers for courses
As we cannot accommodate large numbers on any of the courses in Triora, none of them will be suitable for beginners. The ability level required will be indicated in the description for each course and ranges from young professionals and students of performance to experienced amateurs. Depending on the course, numbers of places will range between 10 and 25.

Shape of the week
Music making generally takes place for six hours each day, with a public performance on the last day.
Individul course timetables vary, but are based around the following pattern:

  • 10am-1pm: Morning session (with coffee break)
  • 1pm-4pm: Free time for lunch, exploring the ancient town, walking in the mountains, swimming in the river pool in nearby Molini or relaxing overlooking the amazing views.
  • 4pm-7pm: Afternoon session with tea/coffee break
  • 7pm-8pm: Optional drinks on the terrace
  • 8pm: Dinner in the local restaurant

One afternoon is left totally free for longer walks/activities and the day chosen will depend on the weather!

We make a daily booking in the local restaurant so that people can choose to eat there or to cook for themselves (depending on their accommodation facilities). Breakfast and lunch are not arranged but can easily be found in the town, or people can choose to self-cater.
