In this class, we will explore the role of both melody players and accompanists, but more importantly the relationship between these two. We will learn a group of tunes from the Scottish, Irish and Cape Breton traditions and discuss the arranging process as we collaborate on our material. We will learn some theory and discuss chord choices, bass lines, and rhythm.

This class is recommended for intermediate-advanced melody players with some tune repertoire already under your belt. For accompanists, knowledge of chords and keys will be expected and you should be able to read through a chord chart. This class is open to any melody instrument as well as guitar and piano.
Please bring a recording device and note taking material.

 

This class meets from 8:00-9:15pm on Tuesday evenings during: 11/14, 11/21, 11/28, 12/5, 12/12, 12/19.
