Callum breaks down the idiom of March, Strathspey and Reel; the MSR. Illustrating the common principles of any MSR, Callum uses the tunes John MacDonald of Glencoe, Highland Harry and Sandy Cameron as specific examples.
In this session we take the 2/4 march math on the page to the expressive idiom it yearns to be. How do the best get that groove that engages the listeners ear? There are several basic premises that all of them share. Elements of dot-cut relationship, fusion, and pulse are all discussed. Enjoy!
In this class, we look at embellishments objectively, and learn to diagnose them for improvement. At the end of the day, there are really only a few things that can go wrong. Once we understand what they are, we're "made in the shade" as they say.
