    Musical Scale and Instrument Making Workshop | Liberi School | 10/20/2017

    Musical Scale and Instrument Making Workshop at Liberi with Eric Fraser

    Friday Afternoon Workshops for ages 5-11
    October 20-December 15
    11:30am-2:30pm
    **There will be no workshops on Nov 24 and Dec 1**

    Please contact director@liberischool.org or call 518-697-5065 to register.

    In the musical traditions of both east and west, there are special scales like archetypes, lending themselves to an abundance of catchy melodies, beautiful phrases, common songs, and so much more. Very often, these special scales only have some (but not all) of the notes in an octave, giving each a unique characteristic. What are the 1st, 4th, and 5th in a musical scale? What are other ways of naming notes in a scale? What is the Chinese pentatonic, the Indian raga? Why do so many children’s songs involve pentatonic scales? This playful Friday music enrichment program with Liberi music teacher Eric Fraser balances unstructured free play with focused activities. Students learn the essence of how to recognize and utilize musical scales through singing, playing, listening, and making. We will create simple musical instruments—using everyday materials and objects—to show different scales and intervals and work towards a culminating piece played on handmade instruments, based on the multi-cultural songs learned in the group.

    Join us for fun times playing outdoors, relaxing, and making music together before heading off for the weekend!

    Eric Fraser is a multi-instrumentalist, educator, composer, and music therapist (MA, MT-BC). Eric brings his array of musical talents to children through singing, guitar, keyboard, percussion, wind instruments, electronic instruments, audio and digital software, recording arts, lyric writing, beat boxing and beat making. His philosophy for teaching music combines technical skill with the imagination and spirit that makes music a core part of a child’s life.

    A Fulbright senior research scholar for Indian music, Eric has studied and performed with renowned maestros of Indian music including Pandit Krishna Bhatt, Pandit Ramesh Mishra, Steve Gorn and Bollywood composer A.R Rahman at Carnegie Hall, including radio performances (NPR morning edition and WKCR New York). Eric is also a senior disciple of a living master of Indian classical music; bansuri flute artist Pandit Gopal Roy. Having learned intensively in the traditional way since 2003, Eric’s bansuri playing rings with authenticity and pure tone, imbibing the soul of Indian classical music. The heritage of the musical tradition Eric learned from in Kolkata, India, is a rare gayaki-ang or “vocal style”, giving it a vital place in the preservation of Indian classical music.

Exercise

  • Bodhi Holistic Spa, Yoga & Salon

    Prenatal & baby & me Yoga w/ Rachel Haley | Bodhi Spa, Yoga & Salon | 10/20/2017

    Join other women in a Yoga practice which builds strength and improves balance, making it easier to manage the extra weight and shifting of gravity that comes with pregnancy. It also helps you to stay connected to the range of physical & emotional changes you are experiencing. In this class we will practice Yoga Asanas to strengthen the spine, open the chest, improve circulation, improve posture and lift the spirit. We will also practice Pranayama or breath consciousness, which can give you energy and quiet the nervous system. Interweaving the practice of meditation will help to bring clarity & fearlessness to the mind.
