Jan 23, 2013 – Embellishing the Music (with Kristina Ivanova)
Often we hear accents (piano, violin or bandoneon) in a song and wish we could do something special to it – embellish it, for instance. In this class you’ll have an opportunity to learn how to listen to the song (even to unfamiliar one) and know: when the accent comes next, what it is likely to be, and how to embellish it. We’ll learn what a leader needs to do in order to create a space and time for a follower to embellish, and what the follower needs to do in order to show that she is about to do something out of the leader’s plan. Remember that often the follower interprets the music differently from the leader, and vice verse. We’ll also give you some useful embellishments for both follower and leader.
