Frank Martin • SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2 PM

This workshop begins by finding the “dance” of 9/4, 11/4 and other odd meters, which is everything! You’ll work on internalizing these meters through movement before singing and playing. We’ll spend time clapping, moving and counting with the goal being to remove any fear or discomfort. These seemingly complicated meters are are no more difficult from other more familiar meters, once your body feels the groove! For all instrumentalists and singers.

Keyboardist, producer Frank Martin has served as music director for Narada Michael Walden and Patti Austin, appeared at Carnegie Hall with Sting, James Taylor and Elton John, and produced records for Al Jarreau, Turtle Island String Quartet, and Joey DeFrancesco. He has performed or recorded with John McLaughlin, Dizzy Gillespie, Larry Coryell, Herbie Hancock, and many others.
