The workshop actually starts before the workshop...

At the time of registration

The workshop is suitable for musicians who already have some experience with their instrument as it is aimed at ensembles. However, it is not necessary that you have many years of experience or that you have already played in a group.
You should estimate your level as closely as possible for the registration form : the groups are composed according to the level of each musician for the benefit of all and to allow you to “prepare” the piece that will be played in concert. If you overestimate yourself, this will put the group in difficulty, including yourself. On the other hand, you risk being disappointed if you underestimate yourself. If you are taking lessons, don’t hesitate to ask your teacher for advice.
Don’t hesitate either to contact the musical organiser, or to give details in the comments section of the registration form.

Between registration and the stard of the workshop 

When registering and during the time groups are being organised, you can propose a partially or fully constituted group. Your wishes are taken into account as soon as the other musicians have validated their registration (payment of the deposit). You can also indicate the pieces of music you would like to work on during the workshop. The musical organiser will do his best to accomodate your requests.
During the month of June, the musical pieces selected and the composition of the groups will be communicated to the people concerned. Participants contact details will be made available so that you can get in touch and make arrangements, such as the scores you will need to obtain, the choice of the movement to be worked on as a priority for the concert, the tempo that suits you, etc…
These preliminary exchanges are beneficial and help to establish a good understanding within the group : they allow you to agree on a certain number of points concerning the piece of music and to create friendships well before the workshop begins.
Finally, don’t forget that the workshop focuses on working together, in ensembles: it is essential that you arrive at the workshop having already worked on your musical pieces as much as possible in order to take full advantage of the time with your teachers and to avoid slowing down the other musicians in your groups.
