Course Description

Designed to take your playing to the next level, Daniel has designed this course around a series of exercises to improve a range of skills. He introduces the famous ‘Caruso’ method for learning the instrument. Our Advanced course builds on the foundations laid in the Intermediate course but goes further by developing your musicianship in a number of key areas. Warming up, improving sound and tone, maintaining control and accuracy and timing are all covered by the ten lesson course.

At the end of this course, you will be equipped to play to a high standard, and take your playing forward by learning how to train and practice by yourself. The course’ focus on musicianship and control will stand you in excellent stead if you wish to continue playing as part of a band.
