Frank MartinSUNDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2 PM

The workshop begins by finding the “dance” of 5/4 which is everything! You’ll work on getting 5 in your body before playing or singing. We’ll spend time clapping, moving and counting in 5/4, with the goal being to remove any fear. It’s no different from any other rhythm, once your body feels the groove! A variety of ways to play 5/4 will be explored, with examples from Horace Silver, Milton Nascimento, Brad Mehldau, Alex Acuna, Michel Camilo, Wayne Shorter, John McLaughlin and songs the instructor has arranged for other artists. We will also explore polyrhythms, phrasing 5/4 and 5/8 over a 4/4 groove. For all instrumentalists and singers.
