I created this event for all marimba player levels and grips. If you are a student, master’s student or a professional - you play Stevens , Burton or Traditional grip - and you are interested in discovering my style of playing , you are welcome!!! No auditions required.
During the event we will focus on "pianistic technique", with "Fluent Movements for Marimba" books and exercises, as well as your musicality and the repertoire YOU are interested in - be prepared for many hours of lessons and practicing. Each participant should prepare 2-3 pieces of his/her own choice.
Group lessons and private lessons are designed on a progressive scale. Each day assignments will be given to participants to study, learn and practice for the next day or session. Exercises such as the ones from "Transparent Fluidity" and "Fluent movements for Marimba," will be demonstrated and worked together with participants by Anders Kann Elten. "Checks" will be held every 2 days as well, to see the progress of each participant.
All private sessions will be held by Theodor Milkov and Arjan Jongsma .
All participants will be staying in houses - 4 people in each , equipped with a 5 octave marimba (no resonators). 24 hours/day practice is possible.
