Musique Acoustique Workshop in Virton, BE 2021

Hello resophonic friends,

Last year, for objective reasons and partially my subjective ones, we took a long break with all the workshops associated with teaching the Dobro.

I hope that this period is at least more or less behind us and that all the activities, as we were used to, will start slowly.

The first act of the year is the Musique Acoustique Workshop in Virton, Belgium, which will take place in a different regime than in previous years, due to the persisting restrictions.
All necessary information can be found on their website: https://www.musiqueacoustique.org (available in French and English)

It is important for us that the teaching resophonic guitar (Dobro) is included in the first round, which will take place on April 3-6, 2021.
The maximum number of students in a class is 6, so capacity is limited.

Registration for the workshop started on January 1 and you can register at https://www.musiqueacoustique.org/stages/registration

If you are interested in the workshop, register, if you want to know more about how the workshop will take place, do not hesitate to contact the organizers.

Let us all keep our fingers crossed that the situation with the pandemic will stabilize so much that the workshop will be able to run smoothly and that we will all finally meet our beloved tools.
with our favorite music.

Henrich

Several dates with Slovak country singer Allan Mikusek

It was my pleasure to play several unplugged concerts with my old pal and amazing singer Allan Mikusek around Slovakia this winter.

Allan also recorded soundtracks for my 13th Resoland Workshop dealing with backups and playing behind the singer. (13.Resoland Workshop) He also contributed on both dates of the workshop by performing with me for the students. Thank you very much, buddy!

Here is a video of Allan’s original as we informaly performed for the students at the workshop:

 

Resoland Workshop no.12 – “Blues on the Dobro” part. 1

Resoland Workshop no.12 is here. Entitled “Blues on Dobro” part.1. this is the first time to discuss this topic at Resoland workshop.

Long notes, slide techniques and almost vocal-like quality of the resonator guitar makes it no.1 candidate to play the blues. Besides, blues is undoubtedly a part of bluegrass, country and jazz, so aspiring Dobro player should without discussion know it.

On this first part we’ll be dealing with form, feeling and structure of the simple blues, dominant7 chords, minor pentatonic and blues scales and also learn couple of blues songs.

The date of the workshop is November 18-20.2016

Note: due to full first date of the workshop I added a second date – November 25.-27.2016

Bluegrass Wellness a new type of workshop

I’ll be teaching Dobro at interesting workshop organized by Ondra Kozak’s ATA Music. The workshop combines a passion for bluegrass music with wellness in beautiful enviroment in northern part of Slovakia.

The dates: July 17th – 21th, 2016

Place: Hotel Marlene, Oščadnica, Slovakia

I’m proud to teach at the workshop with two great Czech musicians – Ondra Kozak (guitar, mandolin, fiddle, bass) and Petr Vosta (banjo)lektoriBGW

Looking forward to see you there, it’ll be fun!

31.Musique Acoustique Workshop, Virton, Belgium

virton2013I’ll be teaching the resonator guitar (Dobro) at Musique Acoustique again this year. The workshop will have 13 international teachers of different instruments which are used in acoustic music. Find more informations at:

http://www.musiqueacoustique.org

The date of the workshop is March, 28th – April 2nd, 2016

My program for 2016 is: every particular day in the workshop week to cover one particular key (G,D,C,A,F), which I consider as a crucial and basic for sufficient playing (Monday – G major, Tuesday – D major and so on ) and provide their complete theoretical and technical analysis to help my students to understand how they functions on the Dobro. My goal is to gain your freeboard knowledge and help you to strengthen the ability to use those keys in your own playing and thus provide the base for your further study of resonator guitar playing.

Every key will be covered by its corresponding scale, chords, exercises and a tune.
Plus some very useful scales for those keys,  like major and minor pentatonics and blues scales will be covered too.

If you need a bit of inspiration, if you are eager to learn something new or to look on the old know things from different perspective, if you want to meet some new resonator guitar friends or/and jam with other musicians, Virton’s Workshop is the right place for you.

Looking forward to see you there!
