Join this 3-session course to build a strong foundation in klezmer music! We will explore the characteristic components of klezmer including modes, rhythms, and stylistic ornamentation. In each session we will study a new tune from the classic klezmer repertoire and learn accompaniment, fills, and variation ideas. We will be learning primarily by ear, but sheet music will also be provided. This class will be geared towards advanced beginners or above, and participants should be able to play G, C, D, A and E major and minor chords/scales. All instruments welcome! Led by Rachel Leader (Mamaliga, Burikes).
