The general aim of this course is to encourage members to become experienced participants of on Ensemble which can play at an Intermediate level, sight read music, ranging from Baroque to Modern in four parts Descant ( key of C ); Alto / Treble ( key of F ); Tenor ( Key of C) and Bass ( key F ) and / or Great Bass ( key of C ). We encourage members to take an interest in instruments in the key of F, where the additional voices encourages greater awareness of the music dynamics and ability to listen to the other voices in the Ensemble!
We have a preference for members to play a wooden instrument Baroque Fingering System, rather than composition due to improved tonal quality of a wooden instrument. This should not deter anyone wishing to move up into this group – the tutor can assist with advice and possibly short term loan of suitable instruments. This is a friendly group – no pressure! Our aim is to make music a pleasurable experience – enquiries Ray Smith ph: 4821 0344.
