workshopsprache: Englisch,

We will work mainly on pipes in G of the Blanc/Dubois type, but in addition you are welcome to bring pipes in low D or C which can enable the pleasure of polyphonic work.

According as circumstances allow, the workshop can include the following elements:

1.    Learning tunes from English/British repertoire, both traditional and modern. We will work mainly by ear, and I will give music out at the end of the workshop.

2.    Working on technique appropriate to the above, not only from the point of view of ornamentation, but also to enhance expression.

3.    Depending on the instruments available it may be possible to work on polyphonic pieces in two or more parts.
