The course is open to students of any level and will deal specifically with soloistic and consort recorder music of the 16th and 17th Centuries with particular attention to the Canzoni da sonar a una, due, tre e quattro voci by Girolamo Frescobaldi. For individual classes students may suggest pieces of their choice not stricly inherent to the main subject of the course. A certain number of replicas of historical instruments will be avaiable for the ensemble classes.
New! Workshop for six to ten years old children: Approaching Music through the Recorder
The workshop features group classes during which children will learn the basic elements of music and recorder playing: music reading and writing, producing the diatonic notes on the recorder, playing and singing short pieces in group and alone. The teaching method will mainly consist in proposing group games through which the concepts and techniques necessary to music and ensemble playing will be transmitted. Interested children may also take short individual lessons. No previous musical knowledge is necessary. Required material consists in a plastic soprano or sopranino (for smaller hands) recorder, preferably with baroque fingering and of adequate quality, an exercise book, pencil and eraser. Other instruments, if necessary, will be made available to the group.
