Event description

Description

Contrary to popular belief, string players can swing, they can groove, and they can rock out. The old refrain, “strings can’t swing”, may be our past, but it doesn’t have to be our future. String players can be just as effective in a rhythm section as a guitar player. In fact, strings can easily hold down a groove without any rhythm section at all, as fiddle players and string bands can attest.

The Strum Bowing Workshop teaches string players how to groove focusing on:
· Improvising – cultivating our natural curiosity and playfulness; making it fun, forgetting our inhibitions.
· Awakening our innate sense of Rhythm – essential to any groove-based style, such as rock, jazz, hip hop, etc.
· Listening to each other – an awareness of the greater whole, responding to the music being made around you.

Join Tracy Silverman for the Strum Bowing Workshop at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 13th, 2019 in the Sanctuary at First Lutheran Church, 225 S 3rd Street, Rockford, IL.
