F-IRE SUMMER WORKSHOP 8-12 JULY 2013. |
@ CITY UNIVERSITY, London
This course will focus on rhythmic communication + 'new' harmony
featuring each day:
- listening / analysis of classic examples
- learn how to practise
this year will be the first time we teach harmony as a featured element of a F-IRE course. we will also be comprehensively covering comping and rhythmic interaction (by popular demand).
F-IRE courses are professional development courses for musicians, usually pitched at the level of music college jazz students and above. We seek to redress the balance in music education by moving away from the 'harmony first' approach. In a relaxed and informal environment the teachers help develop a more holistic outlook and philosophy, as well as totally practical step-by-step guides to progress. Our material and methodology draw from strong creative traditions, with workshop sessions allowing enough time and flexibility for secure learning. All instruments / voice welcome.
tutors: Stephane Payen and Barak Schmool
fee: £28.50/day or £110 for the 5 days.
times: 10am-5pm each day
