WALKING & MUSIC TOUR
On this trip your guides will offer the usual range of walks and activities and also add a music component for those who would like to extend their music skills.
Most days will include either a private lesson or jam session which might be tunes or songs depending on the group. Dave will also do a mini concert during the trip. Tuition will be individually tailored to participants and you are welcome to discuss this with Dave before you reserve your place.
