CHASING THE CHANGES Session II   
 
How can you jump in on a klezmer jam session? What do you do when you're not playing melody? What if you forgot the tune? Based on the popularity of her last workshop on klezmer harmony, Jeanette offers more tips on how to hear chord changes coming, make an educated guess what they will be, reinforce melody, and keep up with other musicians even if you've never heard the tune before. We'll look at typical rhythm/harmony patterns, explore possible variations, consider a bit of klezmer music theory, and as a bonus expand our repertoire for the upcoming wedding season.  
 
This class will combine ear training and written music (bring a music stand!), suitable for players of any age at an intermediate level or above. If you came to Jeanette's last workshop on harmony, rest assured we'll cover new material. If you didn't, don't worry, this is a freestanding class with no prerequisite other than love for the music and an ability to listen.  
 
Registration is $25/sliding scale (whatever you can pay) in cash or check, at the door only. Listeners welcome, too; donation requested. Light snacks are provided. 
   
Class material will be emailed with 
(but it's ok to drop in)
