Monthly Meeting with Barbara McOwen
March 4 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Workshop Leader: Barbara McOwen
Free for Members, $15 Non-Members
The Sunday Schedule:
2:00 Beginner/Intermediate workshop (learn tunes at a slower pace)
3:15 – 3:45 snacks / social (bring something to share if you would like)
3:45 Intermediate/Advanced workshop (fast-paced and more advanced)
Our workshops are led by some of the top musicians and teachers in the field of Scottish and Cape Breton music, known for their outstanding teaching capability or virtuosity or both. See their bios here.
Barbara is teaching the workshops for two consecutive months (February and March) to give some continuity and to build on what was learned from one month to the next. We did this for the first time last year with Jenna Moynihan and it was a success so are doing it again.
The first workshop, beginning at 2:00pm, is geared toward players who prefer to learn tunes at a slower pace. Expect to learn a tune or two. At 3:15 there is a half hour social time with snacks, which is a good time for everyone to catch up with friends and meet new ones.
The second workshop, beginning at 3:45, is taught at a significantly faster pace and will involve more advanced concepts such as bowing techniques, grace notes, etc. Everyone is welcome to attend both workshops, however the second workshop will keep pace with the more advanced players. We hope this format will encourage more people with a broader range of ability levels to participate in our workshops.
We end the day with a short performance by the instructor (optional) and a session.
