MAKING FINGERINGS FUN!!
Don’t get tripped up! This workshop will be about navigating through those tricky passages in a piece that stump us all! We will use two Scottish tunes to focus on fingering and how we can create smoother, faster melodies and gain more control in our playing by simply concentrating on those eight little digits!
AFTERNOON WORKSHOP 12:30-2:30
ESSENTIALS OF SCOTTISH MUSIC!!
Scottish music is steeped in centuries of tradition and it gained great popularity in the U.S. during the folk music revival of the seventies and eighties. The focus of this workshop will be on the different Scottish tune types and their unique characteristics of ornamentation, rhythm, and harmony as well as language and instrumentation. We will apply our new knowledge to learn traditional tunes that sound distinctly Scottish!
