Traditional Music Ensembles

Fall 2021: September 23-December 16
Thursdays 6:30-8 pm
Upper Valley Music Center Elgar Room

After over a year and a half of not playing music together, we’re all a bit rusty when it comes to playing music together. This class is an opportunity to get back our previous abilities, and expand on them. We’ll focus equally on group performance and individual musicianship while playing with others. Repertoire for the class will be sent out via audio and sheet music prior to each class, thus reserving time in class for arranging, improvising, harmonies, ear-training, chord theory, melodic variation, and general discussion. The repertoire will feature tunes from a wide variety of sources including traditional and popular music of North America, the British Isles, and Northern Europe. Level: beginning-intermediate to advanced; the ability to read music is helpful but not required; playing by ear will be a staple of the class

Ages: Adult
Prerequisite: Intermediate or above; ability to play by ear
