"What Do You Hear?"

A unique workshop in the art of active listening

Alison Perkins and Nicolas Brown

Thursday, October 6, 2016, 7:30-8:30pm

Green Wood, 1001 Green Rd, Ann Arbor MI

Cost: $10 for DIMA members, $15 for non-members

Registration at the door

In this enrichment class, attendees will listen to recordings of traditional Irish music and then engage in a group discussion about what everyone hears. Some of the topics that may be discussed include regional and personal styles, tuning, tune choice, variations, rhythm and ornamentation. Students new to traditional music will get a chance to hear some great masters they aren't familiar with yet, and more experienced players will have an opportunity to get into the nitty gritty details of the music. This class is designed to help everyone delve a little deeper into the music than they normally do, learn from each other, and ultimately encourage active listening.
