You may notice some overlap between Seth's reedmaking workshop and Mick's masterclass. The masterclass is designed to be a rolling affair, where students can watch and listen to other players, as well as working through a tune with Mick themselves. Wandering between Seth's class and Mick's class will be encouraged!
