La Bartasse is our base when we are in France. It is a beautiful venue known as Git’anes Rando run by the lovely owner Elisabeth Sambou. We run two Group Workshops here a year, but also accept individual or small groups of kora students. Situated in the Aveyron in a beautiful part of southern France, La Bartasse is a perfect spot for walking, cycling and visiting the many local attractions for which this part of France is famous so if you have a non-kora playing partner there is plenty for them to do.
Kora guests receive a warm welcome, delicious home cooked food, endless tea and coffee breaks and the chance to relax in our beautiful surroundings. Everything is taken care of, allowing you to sit back and immerse yourself in the kora.
The tuition, is similar to that of the group workshops and one that guests have found to be the most effective; Adam teaches you throughout the morning, but allowing you the time to practice in between. He is nearby and normally carries on making koras. Many students are interested in the process; it is all part of the experience. After lunch is your free time but we’re often on hand for more help or advice. If you would like a different arrangement, just ask as we tailor all tuition to the individual – there is no set ‘program’ as no two students are alike..
