The course will focus on developing the technique of playing the violin: its articulation, sound, phrasing, ornaments, pizzicato, col legno, swing, and chords. The musical material will be drawn from the repertoire of traditional dances like the Scottish, the mazurka, the “bourrée”, the waltz, the reel, the jig … melodies from Europe, France, the Scandinavian countries, the Balkans. Aurélie Dorzée will also address creative improvisation and the relationship between the body and the instrument: relaxation, dancing, singing with the instrument.
You’ll practice the search for countermelodies and specific violin accompaniments. You’ll be able to create your own compositions based on improvisations, modes, small rhythmic and melodic exercises. You’ll acquire the tools to develop you own musical path to the instrument and the voice.
You will learn the melodies by ear. Improvisation will be based on every region’s modes and musical scales.
- The workshops can be given in French, Dutch and/or English.
- The workshops are open to viola players.
- The courses will be organized according to three levels: beginners, intermediate and advanced.
The weekly classes will take place on Tuesdays, between 5 and 10 pm. The collective courses are an hour long.
