Music workshops

I organize several workshops during the year:

Although the information and reports from previous workshops under the links above are mostly in Czech language, foreign participants are always welcome. Contact me if you are interested in coming! I also do private workshops for smaller groups of people and for bands.

Ondra did by now two private bluegrass workshops over a weekend with two bands in my home in Ehingen, South Germany. The preparation and realization of the courses were done very well. In advance, we arranged which songs and main points we want to work on. He sent us the workshop material beforehand so we had time to practise the stuff prior to the workshop. Because Ondra is so sympathetic and always so encouraging, we did the workshops in an constant jolly and relaxed mood. We especially worked on harmony singing, song arrangement and improvement of the bluegrass rhythm. In each point he was a brilliant teacher with a lot of great new ideas. He speaks perfect English and has a basic knowledge of the German language as well, so the communication was no problem at all. After those workshops we separated as friends and will certainly meet again on one of his concerts in the South of Germany or on a new workshop.

I would especially like to highlight Ondra‘s thorough preparation of the course. He really cared about preparing the study materials properly. He also has a natural pedagogical talent so the theory has been very easy to understand. We have dealt with very specific problems related to playing country music (especially in the field of harmony). The greatest benefit – playing with the right hand and creating own solos.
