Traditional Ensemble: The art of playing in small groups

Fall 2023: September 6 - November 15
Wednesday 6:30-8:30 pm
This class is full!

The art of playing in small groups is a class for all instruments and levels. We’ll use traditional tunes and songs of different genres including Celtic, North American and Northern European. For each session the class will break into duos, trios or quartets, explore facets of a given piece  then share with the rest of the class at the end. We’ll mix the groups up somewhat as the semester progresses, but this class is an opportunity for folks to come ‘as a band’ so to speak. Several guest instructors are planned during the semester (including April and Joe)
