Members of Heartland Klezmorim have been involved with presenting workshops on klezmer performance for many years. Besides talking about klezmer at many of our concerts, we have presented educational workshops on how to play klezmer music. This includes phrasing, style, and ornamentation. We have presented workshops at the MSU Community Music School, MSU College of Music, Wheatland Traditional Arts Weekend, The Great Lakes Folk Festival, and the Conference of the International Trumpet Guild.
Please contact us if would like us to present an educational workshop at your school/organization.
Members of Heartland Klezmorim are also involved with giving individual instrumental lessons in the Greater Lansing Area.
