This time we want to invite you for a meeting with musical forms close to traditional playing in central and south-western France.
Knowing the rhythms, accents or ornaments typical for the traditional music in these regions can be an excellent base also for those who want to play or create contemporary compositions for dances such as rondeau, branle or bourrée.
Two great teachers will introduce you to the secrets of playing for dancing – detailed information can be found below.
