A Klezmer Tune A Week, Lesson 4 – Araber Tanz (archived)

Our fourth lesson, dated Sunday April 19, focused primarily on the “growl” or “singing” while playing the clarinet.  Several participants requested that I teach this technique through the tune Araber Tanz. As with every lesson we go over the scale or mode that the tune is based on as well as  the rhythmic underpinning that in many ways defines the tune. While LiveChat is no longer an option, you can have unlimited access to the video simply by clicking the Purchase button and following the prompts to receive an automatic download of the pdf of the tune of the week.  If any problems e-mail me at robin.seletsky@gmail.com.
