Whether from a traditional, classical or jazz background, come and explore music and dance drawn from the wonderful music of John Playford’s Dancing Master first published in 1651. The course will be devoted to the dance music: opening up these tunes through new arrangements, improvisational and compositional techniques. The result will be a number of different interpretations of the tunes which will form the basis of our Sunday afternoon dance when the course will combine with the John Playford Dance Day to create our own, unique Playford Ball. Come and explore this fantastic musical heritage...learn the tunes, play them in ensemble, reinvigorate them and experiment with them! All instruments welcome.
