Meet the Didgeridoo, Accordion, and Harp Up Close and Personal @ the New School of Music’s “World Instrument Workshops”
Ever want to try your hand at the didgeridoo, accordion, or Celtic harp? Well, now here’s your chance! Just come to the New School of Music’s World Instrument Workshops series! Come on out of the audience and into the classroom where you can actually learn to make a “credible sound” on each of these instruments in one easy 60-90 minute session. No, these are not music lessons in the true sense of the word. Rather they are fun-filled and informative mini-workshops designed to give you an introduction to select ethnic instruments in an intimate, interactive learning environment. Three of the area’s best qualified music instructors will better familiarize you with each instrument through a combination of lecture, discussion, demonstration and best of all actual hands-on experience. Sounds like fun, Yes? The good news is that you don’t need a lick of playing experience in order to participate and all ages are encouraged to attend. Instruments will be provided unless you choose to bring one on your own.
Pre-Registration for all workshops is required!!! (Call: 617-492-8105)
