VdGS-NE April Online Workshop: Tablature with John Mark Rozendaal

On Saturday April 17, 2021 from 3:00-4:30, the VdGS-NE presents its next special topics workshop entitled: “Beginner tablature for the Viol.” The guest presenter is John Mark Rozendaal

Lyra-viol music written in tablature offers  the solo viol player an extensive repertoire of challenging, entertaining music by some of the best composers of the 17th  century. But accessing this repertoire can be a cognitive challenge!  This class is a practice session to get the “tab chops” moving; including basic  technical exercises, easy ensemble music played from tab, and two solo simple solo pieces from the “Manchester” tablature.  

Parts will be provided for bass, tenor, and treble instruments. Pitch: A=415

For more information please consult the Workshop Flyer.

As previously, the fee for the workshop is $15. If this poses a challenge for you, contact our treasurer. The registration deadline is April 10.

Zoom links and musical examples will be emailed to participants upon successful registration.
