Yiddish Music & Heritage Workshop 

Culture & Music Pilot Program

This pilot session is a two-part workshop designed to be an introduction to the traditional folk and professional music of Yiddish-speaking, Ashkenazic Jews, (those whose ancestors lived in Eastern Europe). While we will do some singing, this class will focus primarily on instrumental music.

 

We will explore Yiddish music in the context of its history and present by diving deep into one tune over the course of two sessions. Students will be introduced to melodic style, accompaniment methods, klezmer modes, and Yiddish dance; they will also learn about, and discuss,  significant culture bearers and social movements in Yiddish culture.

Each session will be geared toward both youth & adults, ages twelve and older who know how to play at least three major scales and one minor scale. Yiddish music is traditionally played using an extraordinary variety of musical instruments; players of all pitched instruments are welcome to attend.
