I did Grade 4 in 2012 and just passed and am now slowly working up to Grade 5 in the next year or so.
I get very bad nerves playing in front of other people. The British Kodály Academy is running another 'Conductors and Singers' Spring Course this year (April 7th-10th).
Saxophones led by Rob Buckland seperate clarinet course.
Musicfest Aberystwyth various courses Thanks for the additions notmusimum and lornawaters - I've updated the list in the first post.
Not sure I can afford to go again this year but will definitely do so at some point in the future.
