AEM ONLINE – Shifting Gears: From 2 to 3 and Back Again with Zoe Weiss
October 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT$25
Get your groove on! Ever wonder how to make the switch between duple and triple time? Or struggled to feel a galliard in both two and three? In this class, we’ll work on developing the related goals of rhythmic grounding and flexibility by practicing transitions between groups of twos and threes at different hierarchical levels. From the privacy of our own homes we’ll experiment with movement, clapping, and vocalization as well as playing our instruments to explore everything from notated meter changes to subtle shifts in implied groupings. Using examples drawn from the repertoire, we’ll isolate tricky moments and see how our newfound flexibility gives us more phrasing options. Examples will be from the viol consort repertoire but non-viol players are more than welcome to participate. Geared to: upper intermediate to advanced instrumentalists, and auditors. Pitch: A=415.
