T13 Ornamentation in Scottish Music

Corinna Hewat

Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


5 Day Course (Saturday to Wednesday)

You may have a few tunes in your repertoire but may not know how to make them sparkle with extra nuances and sculpting by the addition of ornamentation. Small, hardly noticeable additions within your music can lift your phrases from beyond just a tune to letting your music sing! They can make your music sound more authentic and more personal to you, as you choose which ornaments to add and when. We will go through a simple tune with progressive embellishments as we learn them, working within our capabilities in a very gentle slow-moving course.
