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 Sanczuk started playing the violin as a 4-year old, following the Suzuki method. Due to other influences, she got hooked on folk music. She founded Falafel, a folk band that won the Balrally in 2007, provided by Boombal and Muziekmozaïek. In 2009 she co-founded the collective Broers, that was chosen ‘best newcomer of the year’ (Folkroddels) in 2010 and that won the Dranouter Rootsrally. Tours followed in Belarus (2013), China (2013) and Hong Kong (2014)

After years of going back and forth between jazz and folk, she started taking jazz violin with Françoise Derissen at the Brussels Royal Conservatory in 2011. In 2012 she got involved in a new project, led by Wouter Vandenabeele (our teacher folk music ensemble): ‘the Ghent Folk Violin Project’, of which the first album has been recorded. She has collaborated with artists such as: N’Faly Kouyaté, Issa Sow, Mamy Kanouté and Bao Sissoko. She took masterclasses with Kyriakos Gouventas, Casey Driessen, Marcel Ramba et Alexandre Cavalière.
