Shh. Listen to the sounds that surround you. Notice the pitches, the volume, the timbre, the many lines of counterpoint. As light taught Monet to paint, the earth may be teaching you music. Pete Seeger
Music is for everyone and this workshop series is for everyone …whether you are a seasoned performer, a creator, a dancer, or a listener. Music may drive you, stir you, intrigue you or… confuse you. There is much to discover, much to enjoy. Let’s together remove some of veil of mystery. Let’s grab some of the building blocks and create together. Let’s learn how to listen and what to listen for.
Together we’ll explore rhythm, harmony, structure, shape. We’ll begin to understand the importance of balance and unravel some reasons that things often get missed in live performance— important things. We’ll begin to enjoy the beauty of pacing and silence. We’ll share ideas…
Every teacher is a student. Every student is a teacher. Come as you are, with an instrument or without, but with open ears and a curiosity. Join us. There will be no stage, we’re in this together.
