Piano Playing for Scottish Country Dancing
Sun 28 February 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$10.00
A one-day practical course for people with piano skills who would like to
explore the role of the pianist in a Scottish Country Dance band. Not
just for dancers – this is also your chance to bring your friend/family
member into your world!
The course will cover:
The role of the piano in a SCD band
Vamping styles for reels, jigs and strathspeys
The “shape” of a SCD set of tunes
Pianists don’t need to be top-flight soloists. This is a very different
approach: most of the time we’re not playing the tune. Some music
theory is useful, especially understanding major and minor chords.
There will be plenty of practice time, pianos/headphones provided.
When: Sunday 28 February, 10am – 3pm
Where: Lynne’s Studio, 11 Edwin Street, Belmont, Lower Hutt
Bring: Lunch (tea/coffee provided); A digital piano/keyboard if you have one

Lynne is the RSCDS NZBranch Music Adviser.
