Hurdy-Gurdy workshops, Spielkurs Radis



Participants who try out the hurdy-gurdy for the first time get a basic introduction to the setup, tuning and handling of the instrument. Using simple tunes, we’ll try out how to play melodies as well as easy buzzing patterns. Advanced beginners or intermediates with previous knowledge can build on that, expanding their skills in refined buzzing rhythms and overcome individual challenges. Working on selected melodies, I’ll show you how to shape the tunes with ornaments.

No previous knowledge or ability to read music necessary! Everyone gets individual support in respect to their skill level.
Please state in the application if you want to rent an instrument! Participants with their own instruments should thoroughly check it beforehand and, if necessary, have it setup by their instrument maker.
