Individual Tuition in France

If a group workshop is not for you, or the dates don’t work, it is also possible to join us as an individual student. When in France we are based in the Aveyron, and you can join us for a weekend or more of Kora learning. We’re there from June until September (in the UK mid July to late August)

The area is great  for walking, cycling and visiting the many local attractions for which this part of France is famous, so if you have a non-kora playing partner there is plenty for them to do.

The tuition, is similar to that of the group workshops and one that guests have found to be the most effective; Adam teaches you throughout the morning, but allowing you the time to practice in between.  He is nearby and often carries on making koras.

Many students are interested in the kora-making process; it is all part of the experience.  After lunch is your free time but we’re often on hand for more help or advice.  If you would like a different arrangement, just ask as we tailor all tuition to the individual – there is no set ‘program’ as no two students are alike..

For more details on our available dates or to discuss your pricing options please do send us an email or send a text to any of our numbers – we’ll be in touch from wherever we are in the world 🙂

The comfy option

If you want more comfort and don’t fancy the compost toilets and a bathroom in an imaginatively converted van at La Melangeuse(!), you can opt for staying with Fabien at Mas de Jammes, (within walking distance) or with Elizabeth at La Bartasse  (need to drive) then come over to us at La Melangeuse.  We can book the accommodation for you or you can contact them direct as you prefer.  They both have a choice of rooms and prices. You are free of course to find other accommodation.
