Subject: RE: Been on a Maddy Prior singing course ?
Actually it's Mrs Santa, himself stubbornly refuses to try, so my daughter has been on 2, and my sister 1, with me. The setting is lovely and Maddy is relaxed and friendly. I've been on 3 so far.
I suggest you check the number that can be booked on the course that interests you, I much prefer the smaller sessions. These are contained within the barn. I would not want to go to one that had to spill over into the village hall.
The course leading to a concert is good fun, but the need to have something ready to be performed can override the opportunity to follow an interesting idea. Only reasonable, as people pay to attend the concert.
Don't overlook the fact that the price is for the course alone. You need to find, and pay for, your own accommodation. There are plenty of suggestions on the barn's website. It is remote, so you need to consider transport, though lifts can often be arranged within the group.
Thia all sounds rather downbeat, I have no doubt that I will go back, but I will be choosey.
