African xylophones have a beautiful resonance. Called "Balafon", these wooden instruments have gourd resonators that provide amplification.
You will learn easy to-play patterns that also fit well with drum ensembles. Class hand outs with notation are provided.Colour stickers are on each key to help us find the notes.
You are also welcome to bring an audio recording device to tape the workshop for your own reference.
Cost is $40 and you can register directly by clicking here.
The workshop is located at the UVic School of Music (just off Parking Lot "E)". The classroom is B016, in the lower level. There are signs indicating which way to go once you arrive in the School of Music. You can arrive a couple of minutes early to get set up.
