"Traditional Irish Slow Airs" 

Using the hauntingly beautiful melodies of old Ireland as our starting point we'll explore the realm of pure melody and the world of melody with different kinds of harmony/accompaniment.
We'll play as "ensemble" and also study how to accompany a melody as a solo player.
As well as your lyre please bring another instrument if you wish! 

Afternoon´s Lyre group: Let's play together the music we played together around the world during the "lockdown" time! As Veronika Roemer said: let's create a"Mantle of Lyre Sound" around the earth, to help with the healing, strengthening, and spiritual striving of humanity."

Organic Improvisation

With the aim to discover new musical forms coming out of presence, we shall practice various musical and improvisational skills. Through inspiration gained by exploring various musical fenomena and observing musical gestures of life, we will create our own music from within, trying to establish and consciously develop individual motifs. Instead of using known and pre-learned schemes, we will rather start with a "blank canvas" and base our work of art on freedom, awareness and careful listening.

Level: Intermediate/Advanced Language: Czech/English
