Elizabeth Gex – Flamenco Fiddles

Divided in 2 parts, we’re going to talk about:

 

  • “The Benefits of Teaching Flamenco to Young String Players”
    In learning to play Flamenco, children work on rhythm, their ability to learn by ear, memory, develop creativity and become familiar with a different aesthetic than the one associated with Classical Music. We will talk about ways to incorporate this study into their curriculum.
  • Violinists, violists, ‘cellists and double bass players are all welcome to participate in creating a group arrangement of a Flamenco theme together!

 

Elizabeth Gex is honorary viola professor at Shanxi University (China) and has been a member of the Virus String Quartet and collaborator in a variety of productions.
