Coordination is the word that Tuttle uses to refer to her approach to the instrument. There are many aspects to this, including stance, balancing the instrument, physical releases, musical impulses, and emotional responses to the music. These concepts will be introduced to all of the participants, and all of the teachers will work with the participants to help them learn this approach.
Enrollment is limited to 40 participants so that everyone will be able to play several times in the classes. We will not ask for audition tapes, but suggest that this is not a workshop for beginning or intermediate players. Admission will be on a first come, first served basis.
