Klezmer Class starts, Portland, ME, 8 Oct, 2013

Carl Dimow, flutist, guitarist, arranger and composer for the Casco Bay Tummlers, will be teaching a special four week introductory Klezmer Ensemble class, this October at Portland Conservatory of Music. The class will meet on four consecutive Tuesday evenings, starting October 8th. The classes will go from 7:30– 9:00 pm. The tuition is $80 for members, (currently enrolled private lesson students at the Conservatory), and $100 for non-members.

The only requirement for the class is a basic facility on your instrument. In the class we’ll be learning and arranging a number of classic klezmer tunes. In the process we’ll learn some of the scales and rhythms that define this music. We’ll also discuss the history of the music and listen to recordings by influential musicians.

To register for the class, contact Portland Conservatory, (which is located at Woodfords Church, 202 Woodford St., Portland).
