Playing Beyond Classical: Using Your Classical Training to Play Pop
Instructor: Lydia Sewell
Start Date: June 1
Thursdays: 4pm-5pm EST
In this course, you will learn how to transfer your classical training to popular music. Beginning by analyzing and surveying the historical differences between popular and classical music, we will explore different practice strategies, evaluate the role of violin as a tool for melody and harmony, and investigate how we can use the medium of video to become our own "one man band." The course will culminate in a capstone virtual performance in which all students will record, dub over and submit a video of them playing a popular piece of music.
