Description of Presentation
Asian music is renown for its beautiful, soothing qualities, and is so appropriate to enjoy in our everyday, hectic lives. It can also be very vibrant and exciting! In this presentation, I hope to acquaint you with some of the traditional instruments of China, Japan and Korea. You will learn a beautiful Korean song, “Arirange”. We will learn how much Asian traditional music is based upon the pentatonic scale, and you will learn how to play and improvise on this scale. Lastly, I hope to provide you with a short list of some wonderful music and performers, so that you can begin to explore this wonderful music for yourselves. You will also have the opportunity to play these instruments, let us soar!
