Diatonic accordion and ensemble music workshop with François Heim the 27 and 28 April 2024, in Urbino (Italy).

Intermediate and advanced levels

François Heim offers a course based on traditional music or inspired by the traditions of Central Europe, particularly the Balkans. Learning will take place on scores and by ear.

The asymmetrical rhythms and ornaments specific to this music will be covered. Work will be done on accompaniment (chords and right hand rhythm) of the second voice and variations to create a musical ensemble in which everyone can find their place, regardless of level.

The course is aimed at all non-beginner accordion players (minimum 2 years’ practice) and it is preferable to own an instrument with registers.

Students of chromatic accordion and other instruments (guitar, double bass, wind instruments, percussion, etc.) are also welcome.
