Plenty of opportunity to start learning kora or or to develop your skills this year! In August we have our UK workshop August 11th-14th in the South East of England . We are holding our annual week-long workshop in the beautiful Aveyron, in the south of France, September 7-16th. Scroll on down for details. In Kafountine Senegal we do not hold group workshops in the same way, people come and go on dates to suit them as we are open for 6 months a year.
Teaching mixed abilities together works well and ultimately each player needs to find a place to sit and play on their own. At times people often pair up with others at a similar level or a more experienced player will offer to support a beginner – everyone benefits. Group work is supportive but it is a balance of individual tuition with a little group work. Language or lack of it has never been a problem, native English speakers are often outnumbered and communication somehow always works beautifully!
