2018 Workshop Theme: ​

And a 1-2-3-4, or Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is 
The time signature in music serves a purpose beyond the practical function of giving a general pulse or indicating how many beats in a measure. The meter can contribute greatly to the character of the music! In this 1-day workshop, Lisette Kielson leads us in music from around the world, including historical and modern works. We will explore the effects on the music (and player!) of changing meters, complex rhythms, “subtle” bar lines, hemiola, rubato, and a bit of improv! Although few pieces may be in 4/4, have no worries—Lisette will have us confidently counting (and feeling!) the music in no time!
