"Lost... and Found": Finding Your Way Back in the Music

In this series we will practice ways for you to find your way back if you lose your place while playing with others. We’ll listen carefully to the music and learn to understand what is heard – in your own part as well as in the others. Even if you’re playing from a single part rather than a score, you can learn how to sync up with the rest of the ensemble, whether online or in person. Bring your pencil (or stylus) and be ready to mark up a copy of the music that you can refer to later for future repertoire, whether playing online or in person. You will have several opportunities to try these skills on each of the selections that will be presented. You'll also have the opportunity to ask questions as we go through the materials. For both C and F recorder fingerings.

This class is available at no charge to ARS members, only. When registering, use the email address associated with your ARS membership.

About Greta Haug-Hryciw:
Greta Haug-Hryciw had her initial recorder experience with the San Francisco branch of the New York Recorder Workshop in the early '70s.  She is a frequent conductor at ARS chapter meetings, and when the pandemic prevented in-person meetings, she took it upon herself to conduct meetings online for the San Francisco Recorder Society. Since in-person playing resumed in January of last year (2023) she has continued to offer online attendance for long-distance members. Greta is a co-founder and co-director of the Barbary Coast Recorder Orchestra with Frances Feldon, and assistant director for the Mid-Peninsula Recorder Orchestra (MPRO) with Frederic Palmer. 
A San Francisco native with musical roots in the San Francisco Bay Area classical and early music scenes that span three generations, Greta loves having an active part in the recorder community. She teaches students of all ages, coaches ensembles of all sizes and is a frequent director’s assistant at summer workshops. Now the Director of Patron Services for the highly acclaimed non-profit arts organization Voices of Music, Greta also serves on the ARS Board of Directors. She and her husband Lloyd live at the edge of the Pacific Ocean on the San Mateo County (CA) coast.
