next Summer (2007) I'll teach the following courses:

  • Propaedeutical
    to approach the luthery: to know, sharpening and manteining tools, wood technology notions and so on, along with practical luthery exercises in sight of a musical instrument building
    target: the beginner, who never come close to wood or tools
    July Thursday 5th 2007 - July Saturday 14th 2007, booking within July 5th 2007
    no more than 5 people

    Eur 700.00 to attend the class

Of course you can't learn everything in ten days, but you'll have some good basic and ideas to deep and practice

 

  • Work at my workshop
    be an apprentice in my workshop
    target: aspirant professional lutemakers
    strongly required some experience about Musical Instruments building and/or woodworking
    July Thursday 19th 2007 - July Saturday 28th 2007, booking within July 5th 2007
    no more than 5 people

    Eur 700.00 to attend the class
    + Eur 700.00 if you want to bring an instrument home (Renaissance Student Lute)

Of course you can't become a professional in just ten days, but sure this experience will be unique: you'll be part of a team working to build 5 Renaissance Lutes and the kits for the following classes

 

  • Repair
    how to fix, modify, restore your instruments + something about maintenance
    target: mainly Musicians
    August Thursday 2nd 2007 - August Saturday 11th 2007, booking within July 5th 2007
    no more than 5 people

    Eur 600.00 to attend the class

Of course you can't become a repaireman in just ten days, but sure you can be more conscious about your instruments, able to understand their problems and to fix them by yourself


  • Build your own instrument
    how to build your instrument
    target: mainly Musicians, but also aspirant lutemakers
    August Thursday 16th 2007 - August Saturday 25th 2007, booking within July 5th 2007
    no more than 5 people

    Eur 700.00 to attend the class
    + Eur 700.00 if you want to bring your instrument home (Renaissance Student Lute)

Of course you can't become a Lutemaker in just ten days, but sure you can learn something more about your instrument, understand how it gets out of a bunch of wood, become familiar with tools and, well ... how to put together a kit

the instruments
for the "Repaire" class you are more than welcome to bring your own instruments and to work on it, then a lot of repaire will be done on "spare" parts.

the standard for "Build your own instrument" and "Work at my workshop" classes will be a Renaissance Student Lute (7 course) but if you want to build something different ask for it, we'll see if it is possible

if you want to bring your brand new instrument home you'll work with a kit of parts to be assembled

BE AWARE :
all of the instruments built during the classes will have a lable as follow
