KLEZMER JAM & WORKSHOP IN TEN DAYS!
Sunday, July 16, 2:00-5:00pm, in Berkeley
Led by Jeanette Lewicki
At Art House Gallery & Cultural Center, 2905 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley
Taught by klezmer accordionist & Yiddish singer Jeanette Lewicki, the workshop will include charts, technique, ear training, arranging for groups, & some klezmer music theory. If you took part in Jeanette's last workshop, note that we'll start with the tunes we didn't get to last time!
Later in the afternoon, after Jeanette begins the jam session with a warm up tune or two, musicians will take turns "calling" a tune, with everyone learning new tunes by ear or enjoying playing or improvising on familiar ones.The leader will provide guidance for pace, transitions, and ensure an overall smoothly run and fun afternoon!
