This class meets online on Zoom beginning at 6pm on Thursday, October 22.
Your class confirmation email will contain the Zoom class link.
This class takes students on a round-the-world tour of musical genres and instruments. Sessions in Part 1 start with the Middle East and North Africa, which share some common scales and rhythms, exploring instruments from familiar guitars to not-so familiar zurnas. From there, we go to North America, focusing on the blues and their Northwest Africa roots, and then back across the Atlantic to Europe and the UK; from Spain with its cajón drum and Moorish/flamenco musical style to South America. Part 2 session will focus on Asia and sub-Sahara Africa.
A notebook and pen for taking notes.
ONLINE WITH ZOOM
You will need to be sure the Zoom app is installed on your device. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing a secure link to join the class.
You will be able to login 15 minutes before the class start time. We recommend logging in before the class starts to make sure you are settled in and ready to go when the class is set to begin.
If you are new to Zoom, please note that we will not be able to help with the app. It is strongly recommended that you navigate Zoom on your own before the class starts to get to know the mute and video settings. Try it out by talking with a friend or family member who has the Zoom app. The Cultural Center uses Zoom to conduct online classes, and I understand that the Zoom meeting will be recorded. By participating in the class, I consent to be recorded and place no restrictions on distribution of the recording.
