Presented by KlezCalifornia

Klezmer Condiments, with Cookie Segelstein

What makes a delicious meal feel like home, feel traditional? It’s the little things. The spices, the techniques, the presentation. It’s the same with klezmer music. It’s the little things that make it feel and sound right. Anticipations, fills, little variations, rhythmic styles and ornaments. In this workshop, we will explore these elements that are necessary to make klezmer music sound like klezmer music!

This workshop is appropriate for intermediate level and above, people who are comfortable with their instruments, and willing to learn techniques by ear. There will be sheet music, and handouts for C and B-flat instruments.
