* Borrello Jazz Flute

Summer Jazz Flute Course 2018
Useful info:
Dates of course: 2,3,4, 5 August.

If you are not coming by car you will need to get to Pescara by late afternoon on the Wednesday afternoon before the course starts; so by max 19.00, Wednesday, August 1st. From there I will organise us into cars or a minibus (we will share the cost but it should be no more than maybe 15 euros each) to go up to Borrello. The drive is about an hour. Arriving later than 19.00 in Pescara might be a problem for coordination, as well as putting your evening meal in Borrello at risk.
Please keep me informed of your travel arrangements and , if possible, let me know before you book your ticket, about which flight you are thinking of arriving on. This will greatly help me organise the transport from Pescara to Borrello
Sometimes it is convenient to get to Pescara the day before (Tuesday) and have a day at the seaside before going on to the course.

There is no effective public transport link between Borrello and the rest of the World.

Pescara has an airport, a railway station, and regular direct coach links with both Rome airports.

For accommodation in Borrello we do an inclusive price negotiated with the only restaurant in town and hotels/bed-and-breakfasts. This should not be more than €60 a day, for the room and all meals.
There is no charge for the actual course.
The hostel should be available so there should be sufficient accommodation in Borrello for everybody.

The course will finish Sunday evening about 19.00. Most people stay that evening in Borrello and depart Monday morning, but some will choose to depart immediately.
During the course I will do a mix of masterclass and workshop so there will be individual attention and group tuition.
Level will be mixed and participants will be from different backgrounds.
I teach in two languages: English and Italian.

During the course there will also be concerts which as yet have to be confirmed. I will certainly be doing a jazz performance in some context. This will be the tenth edition of Borrello Jazz Flute so I am hoping for a big turnout and to be able to put on some interesting events.
There may also be other events in Borrello and neighbouring towns, apart from our final concert (in which you will be playing) on the Sunday afternoon.
We will also organise a visit to the local wildlife area, which has Italy’s highest natural waterfall.

Last year we had Norwegian jazz guitarist Jan Fredrikesn as our special guest.
