Course content

The special thing about this course is the close supervision in a personal frame. We will give participants ideas and proposals from the rich repertoire of balkan music to take home with them so that their arrangements will really start grooving.
We will play by scores, by ear and by cord patterns. At the core of our activity will be a joyful `learning by doing`. Everyone - whether with much or little music experience - will profit!

Target group

This workshop is for musicians of any genre who want to learn, further develop and experience the soul of gypsy, balkan and klezmer music.


It is advisable to have a good capacity to play an instrument. But you do not need to have any previous knowledge of world music.
