Hello friends,

I will lead "Ornamentation Boot Camp" -- a workshop for tin whistle,
low whistle and flute players -- on Sunday, November 8 from 1:00 to
5:00 PM at The Irish Arts Center, 553 W. 51st Street, between 10th
and 11th Avenues in Manhattan.

The class is for musicians who are comfortable playing Irish dance
tunes at a moderate pace, but who are new to ornamentation or who
would like to review the techniques. The workshop will start with
instruction in cuts and strikes, and then move on to long rolls,
short rolls, and crans. Each ornament will be presented in the
context of a tune, so you will not only learn techniques, but you'll
also come away with new pieces to add to your repertoire.

The fee for the workshop is $45. Irish Arts Center members, children
under sixteen and seniors receive a $5 discount.

Space is limited. To register, please call Rachael at The Irish Arts
Center: 212-757-3318, ext. 209, 10 AM to 6 PM, Monday to Friday.

I hope to see some of you there.

Bill Ochs

P.S. If you have attended a previous Ornamentation Boot Camp, please note
that I will be teaching all new tunes in this one.
