Courses overview

Folk violin

Anouk Sanczuk
MABO - Lycée Maria-Boodschap - Rue de la Braie 22, 1000 Bruxelles

The course

The course will be focused on violin playing technique (articulation, sound, swing, ornaments …) following a repertoire of dances (scottisches, mazurkas, stuffed, waltzes, reels, jigs …) and traditional melodies from Europe (Balkans, France, Scandinavia …)

Improvisation will also be addressed in a creative form, as well as the body-instrument balance (relaxing, dancing, singing with the instrument) specific countermelodies research and violin accompaniments.

Learning melodies will be done by ear : this technique, practiced in many countries, develops concentration, memory, reflexes, creativity, independence, personal freedom, contact between musicians and confidence on stage. Modes and scales relative to each region will be a basis for improvisation.

The course is open to beginners, but a minimum instrument practice is required. Bring a recorder and / or camera.

Beginners: individual classes

The aim of the course is that the student should have achieved a certain mastery over the instrument. Musical hearing will be developed so the student can learn melodies in an intuitive rather than a scholastic way.

Advances: group classes

In these classes we will learn to play by hearing. A basic knowledge of the instrument is required. Groups will be formed according to the level of playing.

The weekly classes will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 5pm and 10pm.

  • Group classes are 1 hour.
  • Individual classes are half an hour.
Anouk Sanczuk

Anouk started playing the violin at the age of four by the Suzuki method. Thanks to external influences she acquired a taste for folk music. She founded the folk group Falafel and with it she won the 2007 dance rally, organized by two not-for-profit organizations, Boombal and Muziekmozaiek. In October 2009 the new group Broes was set up and Anouk, as one of its members was chosen as the best newcomer of the year by Folkroddels, while in 2013 she won the Dranouter Rootsrally, as a result of which she was able to play at the Dranouter Festival. This was followed by tours of Belarus and China, also in 2013, and Hong Kong in 2014.

After wobbling between folk and jazz for a few years she entered the Royal Conservatoire in Brussels in 2011 to study jazz violin with Françoise Derissen. In 2012 she launched a new project under the aegis of Wouter Vandenabeele: this was the Ghent Folk Violin Project, whose first album has already been recorded. Among other people, she worked together with N’Faly Kouyaté, Issa Sow, Mamy Kanouté, Bao Sissoko and Wouter Vandenabeele. She has also followed masterclasses with Kyriakos Gouventas, Casey Driessen, Marcel Ramba and Alexandre Cavalière.
