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.

One thought on “Music Trips

  1. Hi Dave, I have this site through GC Bushwalking Club, so I love walking, but I notice that your group seem to be players of instruments – I am a singer with an a’cappella chorus, so would one of your trips be suitable for me? I’m full up with trips this year, but perhaps you might send me info on other walking or music tours you do in 2018? Many thanks Kay Don
