Early music notation study-group

Submitted by Katherina Weyssin on July 19, 2019 - 12:53pm

What is this?

A practical study-group to learn how to play early music directly from the notation in which it was first written. Specifically, music printed in Italy in about 1500 (possibly extending earlier as we get better at this). 

The philosophy will be "learn by doing" and "one step at a time". 

In each session we'll aim to learn enough theory to play the piece in front of us; and to choose pieces so that we can tackle one challenge at a time.
