Written music is a dense symbolic language that communicates tons of information. There can be a lot of markings on a page of music and some are pretty cryptic for the uninitiated. I have designed these workshop for those who have little or no musical training or those who would like a refresher course to better understand their music score.
Entry level workshop: This workshop is designed to demystify the music score. It explores what information is available on the page to help you better perform your music taking into consideration the intentions of the composer. Topics include tempo, dynamics, slurs, key signatures, time signatures, the staff, clefs, note reading, intervals, and how to follow the road map of your printed music.
