Workshop 2 ~   10 am - 11:15

novice and early intermediates -  


Learn to play a wonderful tune for Zmas with Marilyn Rummel.  We'll play the melody, then learn how to accompany this tune easily and beautifully, and what else you can do with it.  To start, you can learn the melody, or just print it out to be ready for the workshop if you'd like to read. It will be played slowly, where we can appreciate the beauty of the melody. Even those who have a bad idea of this tune will have your mind changed - I promise!

Workshop 3 - 10 am - 11 am

All about tuning


Tuning workshop with Elizabeth Volpé Bligh - Learn how to tune by ear using a tuning fork, a note from a tuning app or piano: how to read and calibrate your tuner, what app’s are recommended, when to use a clip-on pickup, why we tune to A 440-442 unless it’s early music. Lever harps: what key to tune the harp in. All harps: why the levers or pedals must be disengaged when we’re adjusting pitch.

Here are the notes to the workshop 



Composers and Arrangers Panel -  12:- 12:45

A lunch time interlude! Hear from 6 or 7 local composers and arrangers, and see what they have to offer for sale in sheet music and CD's. It's a great chance to get to know your local musicians, and find something new to learn. Full links will be provided to everyone who registers.
