Event Description

This is a course on what I call “ready-way,” a technique for mastering passages from pre-Twinkle through advanced repertoire. We will discuss its relationship to Dr. Suzuki’s “Finger-Bow-Go” idea, where preparation and stillness promote order. Specific examples and exercises from the repertoire will be used, as well as any that the participants would like to explore.

Course full.
