Piano Workshop with Kevin Harris [Brooklyn, NY]
Come join us for our 2nd FREE NYC workshop! Our first amazing workshop with Swiss Chris was phenomenal! Children 9-17 years are welcome!
Workshop Title: “It’s a language” This workshop will focus on the concept of “Music as a Conversation” students will explore music as a language by listening, retaining and expressing. Students will experience the piano, clapping along, singing along, call and response, engage in discussion about the origins of the blues and how it helps people work through adversity. Students will explore improvisation, develop an understanding of the blues, gain historical background, draw connections and comparisons between genres of music and have the opportunity to create their own blues. The workshop will conclude with an interactive demo/show presented by Mr. Harris and his band for students and parents. Interested students are open to signing up for private lesson with Mr. Harris. This workshop will include a CD give away of Mr. Harris’ recordings. For some background on Kevin, check out the Kevin Harris Project
