Welcome to the final day of HISS at Home! As well as the fifth instalment of 'Introduction to Baroque Strings', looking at overdotting and overtures, today we bring you the prototype for some exciting new recorder tutorials by Mary.
Today's live YouTube premiere is at 2pm, showing you some of HISS' past Bursary students 'in conversation', reminiscing about their experiences at HISS.
We are also showcasing Jake's "Lockdown Lute" series, which was produced by our supporters, the Early Music Shop.
Video 5 – Overdotting and overtures
Our recorder tutor, Mary Tyers has been busy working on creating a series of recorder tutorials entitled, 'Recorders: Dance & Sing'. This is due to be launched in September, with material available to be purchased via her website. The video below is one of the prototype versions of those tutorials.
Here's a message from Mary:
Hi fellow HISS recorder players, really missing getting together to play in real time. The video below explores a lively Gigue by Silvius Leopold Weiss, arranged for treble recorder. A pdf score is also available here. The tutorial is aimed at upper intermediate level players, but might also be enjoyed by lower intermediate players who enjoy a challenge and are content to drop the tempo a little.
The focus is on ways to practice and achieve fluency when faced with extended passages of continuous quavers; also, to begin to recognise and differentiate melody and accompanying figures when both are contained within a single line of music. I hope you enjoy it & would love to hear how you get on with it.
Happy tootling & looking forward to seeing you all next year. Mary ?
