Beginners Recorder Workshop

Beginners Recorder Workshop

Sunday, 21 March 2021, 12.00pm


with Helen Hancock

Helen Hancock is delighted to present another beginner recorder video workshop for Galway Early Music. This time she will dip into the music of German composer, Melchior Franck (1573-1639). The tune you will learn this time is Kommt, ihr G’spielen which was originally a folksong in 4 parts. It is believed that the song was initially part of a Singspiel in which boys and girls tease each other and that singing it was part of the custom of driving out winter. It is certainly a cheerful tune!

This workshop is suitable for beginner recorder players or recorder players who are rusty and want to rediscover the joy of playing. You will be learning the soprano part. Helen will teach the recorder notes from scratch and will teach the tune by ear using solfa and clapping, making it accessible for all. And finally discover the joy of playing it with a 4 part recorder ensemble!

Note: You need a descant/soprano recorder. Plastic is fine!

The workshop is free, but registration is required. Follow the website link below for more information.
