Workshop for romanian violin music










Introduction to Romanian music with Jean-Christophe Gairard

What will we do in this workshop?

Practice by ear different melodies from Romania: At first we will listen together to different melodies coming from some regions of Romania. We will identify the instruments and their role in the music. We will determine the structure by hearing the parts according to the melody and the bass line.

Since Romanian music lives through oral tradition, I will teach some melodies and show the specifics of the styles (ornaments). For advanced players I can show different kinds of ornamentation, variations, versions of melodies, second voices and how to find/play them after the first voice and harmony.
We will also spend time learning the chords and bass lines. Of course we will also talk a little about music theory (harmony theory).
