Dan Blacksberg will lead an exploration of the nuances of accompaniment in klezmer, from trombone to the piano. Working with a preselected repertoire of tunes, we’ll explore a range of both pre- and post-revival klezmer styles and even think of how we can create our own new styles! We’ll cover artists/styles such as Belf, early American (Abe Schwartz, Kandel), Middle American (Tarras Trio, Howie Lees) and Modern American and European styles. Participants in this class should come with a decent knowledge of chords (up to 7th chords), and the ability to follow the class by ear, and having learned the repertoire. Please contact Dan Blacksberg firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and to get the tunes for the class.
