Sabhal Mòr Ostaig are delighted to welcome back Piano Accompaniment into their Short Courses program this Easter with the very talented Ingrid Henderson!
On this course you will be learning how to confidently accompany Gaelic song and traditional melodies on the piano.
Solo repertoire will be covered but the main focus will be on piano accompaniment; how to create arrangements for different styles of tunes and how to improvise and join in confidently with other musicians and singers. There will also be a chance to test out your skills by linking in with the fiddle course.
This course will be taught by ear but with music and notes at the end. Recordings can also be made. Students must bring their own keyboards and have some piano playing experience.
Involved in many aspects of traditional music, Lochaber based harper and pianist Ingrid Henderson is a “musician of quite outstanding calibre, a virtuoso in terms of sensibility...” Ingrid has over twenty years’ experience performing, teaching and recording traditional music appearing with the likes of Cliar, Glenfinnan Ceilidh Band, Blazin Fiddles and singers, Anne Martin & Margaret Stewart. She is principal harp tutor at the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music and lectures on the BA Gaelic and Music course at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, Isle of Skye. Ingrid also runs Old Laundry Productions, a studio/music production company based in Glenfinnan.
