HANDS ON MUSIC has been running music courses and workshops since 1991.

The aim of Witney Supersqueeze remains the same, to provide good quality teaching and musical input for players and singers in the broad area of folk, traditional and world music.

The courses and workshops are designed for those who have already started on their musical journey, and have some knowledge of their instrument. The tutors have been selected for their ability to convey their knowledge and expertise. They each devise three course units and prepare musical material in advance, which is available to students a few weeks beforehand.

Features of the workshops

Course Units – Each tutor offers three course units – Saturday Morning, Saturday Afternoon and Sunday – so that you will be able to work with three different tutors if you wish. Check out the programme.

Friday Night Gathering – An informal welcome session with music to play, and teas and coffees available. Bring along anything you want to drink.

Booking SystemBook and pay for the weekend online with a new, secure booking system.

Advance Music – Some of the music for the weekend will be available to course participants a few weeks beforehand for download online, so that you can print off the pages you need. There will also be mp3 files of the music being played.

Tutors’ Concert – An opportunity to hear stage performances from the tutors.
