Begun as a response to not being able to offer our in person workshops during the 2020-2021 academic year due to COVID-19, the Special Topics Classes are one hour mini-workshops held on Zoom. We plan to continue offering these classes into the future as they allow us to reach beyond our specific geographic area. During the first year topics included technique classes, Machaut’s Lai de la Fontaine, a crash course on tablature, and a special session of trios. Presenters were largely from outside the New England region and included Mary Springfels, Catharina Meints, Larry Lipnik, and Ros Morley.
The classes cost $15 a session. Participants will be sent any required materials along with the zoom link before the workshop. Sign-up will be part of the announcement for each session: reachable directly from our homepage.
