"Jane Austen's Ball" - English Country Dance Music Intensive (Workshop)!

Thursday, Jan 24, 2013 6:30p to 9:30p
Studio 55 Marin San Rafael, CA

Seen any of those “Jane Austen Teacup-Drama" movies where there's always a sumptuous ball with exquisite music? THAT's English Country Dance music! Think "classical music lite” in 16 bars, with all the hard bits and extra positions rubbed out, with extra room for your own innovative frosting, frills, and classical style improvisation.. Learn ways to vary melody, find harmonies and bass lines, and use rhythmic approaches to make the music exciting. Then, play for a real dance!
