“Beyond the dots” – Jam Workshop for Musicians

Oftentimes musicians are divided into two categories, those who can play by ear and those who need “dots” – music notes. This workshop is especially for those who have not explored learning music by ear, as well as for musicians who play by ear but just want to learn some new tunes! Through the use of simple European melodies (Polish, Ukrainian, Romanian), Cookie will guide participants to feeling comfortable in a jam session even if this is your first time jamming! After learning the melodies, we start to apply the stylistic elements, ornaments, trills, fills and thrills. Some of the melodies will stem from the music in her childhood home, a mixture of Jewish, Ukrainian, and Polish.

This class is best suited for intermediate players and above and open to all acoustic instruments.

Led by noted violinist/violist, teacher, and educator Cookie Segelstein of internationally regarded Veretski Pass Klezmer Trio. Presented by Calliope: East Bay Music & Arts.

St Alban’s Episcopal Church and Online. $20-30.
