FLUTE SCHOOL LONDON at Monplaisir

Saturday 4th to Wednesday 8th May 2019

“Thank you all for your encouragement, friendship, and brilliant flute playing.
I had a wonderful time.”  Lynn

2019 will be the third year that the LONDON FLUTE SCHOOL comes to Monplaisir, a beautiful country house set in acres of lovely gardens in this most peaceful part of south-west France.

Chamber musician and flute tutor Janna Hüneke and trained chef and amateur flautist Marion Gough are looking forward to welcoming back old friends and newcomers on next year’s residential course which runs from 4th to 8th May 2019.

The course is friendly and informal, with a maximum of 12 participants, and is suitable for adults from grade 6 or equivalent playing standard to Diploma level. Sessions are individually geared towards course participants.

You’ll fly from London Stansted to Brive-la-Gaillarde on the morning of Saturday May 4th, (flight times to be confirmed), or you can choose to make your own travel arrangements, arriving in Ambeyrac ready for the first playing session at 3pm that afternoon. The day will be rounded off with drinks on the terrace and a 4 course dinner, served with local organic wines.

 

As well as gourmet food and wine, and a chance to discover this beautiful region of France, the course offers a mix of whole group rehearsals, the opportunity to play duets/trios etc, and individual master classes, culminating in a concert on the last evening in our local church in front of an enthusiastic and appreciative audience. An individual one-to-one lesson is also an option if desired, and a chance to play with Cécile Martin, our experienced accompanist.

 

There will be the opportunity to visit a local market and some of the beautiful medieval villages in the area, and you can try some of the local specialities for lunch in a renowned local auberge.
There are plenty of options for walking or cycling in the beautiful valley of the River Lot, as well as stunning spots for wild swimming, but you can also just put your feet up and relax by our heated pool.

 

Cost per participant
Shared room in gite  £540
Single room in gite   £600
Shared en-suite room in main house  £600
Single en-suite room in main house   £675

There is a reduction of £50 per participant if you make your own travel arrangements.

We hope you’ll agree the course provides amazing value, as it includes all of the following:
– Flights London Stansted/Brive, and transfers to and from Ambeyrac (1hr 20mins)
– 4 nights accommodation
– breakfast, lunch and four course dinners, including local wines with dinner
– participation in flute sessions, an individual lesson, an accompanist and the concert (there’s no obligation to perform)
– local activities and excursions
