The course has four themes, regardless of level:
- Tone Agility Melody Mode
- Creativity and Integration.
Over the 15 days in 2019, we have a total of 3 days each of Rhythm, Harmony and Agility; and 6 days of Creativity and Integration. These are spread in a journey across the three weeks, with practice assignments in between. There are more Creativity and Integration days because this time is partially used to integrate what has been learned in the other 3 areas, and partially used for more free improvisation, singing and creativity.
Now, as for what is covered within these four themes, see firstly which level am I?
Then, for more detail, see here for Levels 1 and 2.

Music learning is a life-long journey. At the end of the year you will not be “done.” But you will be further along. After completing a year, you have the option to move to the next level if appropriate for you, pause your study, or continue to study along a different path with whichever teacher, course or program is right for you.
I don’t over-parent you about how much time and energy you are putting into your practice. I treat you as adults in that. I give you practice assignments, and provide support structures. The more time and awarness you put into your practice, the more you find the approaches to study that you love and want to return to more and more, for longer and longer, the further you will progress.
