"Even More Variations" with Jacob van Eyck
Four Fridays, Mar. 18 through April 8, at 4:30pm Pacific
This class is for: Students of recorder, flute, or violin, age 9-14. This is a multi-level class, but students should be comfortable playing in keys with up to two sharps or one flat.
This is a second class on this material, and newcomers are welcome to join! Jacob van Eyck was a carillon player, organist, and recorder virtuoso. The collection of folk music he published in 1644 is a treasure trove of ornamentation, showing multiple ways of decorating simple tunes with extra notes in the improvisatory style of the time. Beloved returning SHAK instructor Miyo Aoki leads students in finding variations to play, and everyone enjoys a hands-on experience of the thrilling historical art of ornamentation.
