5 Day Course (Saturday to Wednesday)

The Baltic to Balkan path along Eastern Europe boasts a wealth of arresting melodies, uneven time signatures, and striking harmonies.  In this course we’ll traverse the Baltic States and head south toward the Balkans, uncovering an array of tunes and ways to play them.  We will also delve into how different techniques can be used to punctuate and personalise a melody.
