As our guitar section will be very small this year, it will not run as a separate section; however any soloists who wish to perform and get valuable feedback are welcome to enter any of the classes listed below. 

The performances will take place as part of the strings section and be adjudicated by strings adjudicator, Kathryn Hardman.


Kathryn Hardman trained as a violinist at the Royal Northern College of Music, graduating with distinction both in performance and teaching, subsequently working as a freelance musician, and teaching at the RNCM.  She held the post of Head of Strings for the County of Avon from 1985–1991, directing senior ensembles and also teaching for the Birmingham Conservatoire Junior Department.

Kathryn has established an extensive private teaching practice in Bristol and also teaches at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and Bristol University.

Kathryn enjoys tutoring on holiday music courses including NCO, NYCO and her own chamber music course, “Novacorda”.  She is also an Adjudicator for The British and International Federation of Festivals.  Time permitting, other interests are travel, walking and Shakespeare.
