FREE LAST SATURDAY SEMINAR: Dr. Victor Penniman
Saturday, April 29....6pm
119th & Quivera Location
Minuets, Gavottes, and Boureés, Oh My!
April's Fourth Saturday Seminar is for everyone! If you're taking music lessons
at the MSA, chances are you've played a few different pieces called "Minuet."
You've also probably played some called "Gavotte", and maybe a "Boureé" or
"Sarabande" as well. These dance types all the rage in the Renaissance and
Baroque periods, along with Gigues, Courantes, Passapieds, and a number
of others we'll learn about. The underlying rhythms of these dances are
what differentiate each from the next, and knowing what those rhythms are
can totally change the way you approach and interpret each one.
Join Dr. Victor Penniman as we explore some of the more commonly-found
dance forms with out of your Suzuki books (be sure to bring those books and
your instrument)! Come discover the hidden rhythms and drum patterns
that can really bring these pieces to life!
