    Camden Guitar Ensemble Going Strong

    Local Music Service Still Provides One of the Best Contemporary Guitar Courses for Young Musicians Available

    by Simon James.

    The Camden Guitar Ensemble for children of all ages is still going strong after 4 years! The Summer concert at Camden School For Girls was a resounding success after another weekend of hard graft from all involved and repertoire included famous theme tunes, namely 'Doctor Who,' 'Red Dwarf' and 'Flash.' Inspirational stuff!

    The Camden Guitar Ensemble is an intensive weekend course that takes place four times a year. Rehearsals begin at Camden School for Girls at 4.30 on the Friday where the players are divided into three groups; the juniors (Super Strum), the medium levellers (Camden Guitar Orchestra) and the seniors (Camden Guitar Ensemble). The pieces set for the weekend are introduced and practising goes on until 7.30. Three sessions take place on the Saturday between 10.00 and 4.30 before final rehearsals on a Sunday morning and then winding up with a performance in front of friends and family on the Sunday afternoon.

    The weekend is a fantastic opportunity for young guitarists to apply their skills to the band situation and get a real feel for what rehearsing and performing is like. The course is fairly intensive and hard work is required but there is a great vibe amongst the kids, the repertoire is tremendous fun and there is a wonderful chemistry with teachers Rich Barnard, Nicola Hawkins, Rich Jarman and Simon James who are all professional musicians and organise the weekend with the help of Camden Music Service.

    Courses take place at the following times during the year:

    February (Half Term)

    April (Start of Easter Holidays)

    June (Half Term)

    October (Half Term)
