Details:Bring your instruments and voices to the Slosberg Recital Hall on this fall's first Fridays at 1 for an American Roots Music Extravaganza!

Next semester, Visiting Assistant Professor of Music Taylor Ackley will be starting a new American Roots Music Ensemble here at Brandeis. In this for credit ensemble course, students will study and perform repertoire from Roots music traditions including blues, country, swing, bluegrass and Appalachian folk. They will learn to play these styles by ear while developing skills in arranging, harmonizing and improvising. Participation is open to instrumentalists and vocalists from any musical background (including those who play instruments not usually associated with these styles).

In preparation for next semester, Prof. Ackley will be hosting three workshops open to all Brandeis music students (including graduate students) in the Slosberg Recital Hall. These will be held on the 1st Friday of the month in October, November and December at 1 p.m.

The first workshop on October 1st will focus on learning folk melodies by ear and exploring how melodic embellishment can grow into improvisation.
