Ensemble Work

Playing as a member of a group is wonderful!

Playing in a chamber group is wonderful-er!

You will form quartets and choose to play Ronde or Salterello.  Practice on your own and then you can contribute to the group.

“Ronde” notation & audio

SoundCloud audio –  Part 2     –   Part 3       –         Part 4       I did not take repeats.

We will play this together on Wednesday and then hopefully at the nursing home.

Songwriting Masterclass video

Melissa Ferrick shares successful strategies to get and keep your mind engaged in cultivating a song. I found it very energizing and practical.  I write for myself, so I do like the acknowledgement of the drive for personal expression.

Now that you have written a song or three, what about copyright?
