Learn Korean Traditional Music with KPAC’s Professional instructor!!!

Korean Performing Arts Center will present 2014 Winter KPAC’s Workshop Series, gamin’s Traditional Korean Instrument Workshop: Danso (Short Bamboo Flute) from February 28 to March 2. KPAC has offered this workshop each year to give students a great opportunity to learn more about Korean culture and arts through traditional musical instruments and dance pieces. This workshop aims to inform and disseminate Korea traditional culture and arts in mainstream America.

We are very excited to offer this opportunity to students who have never experienced learning Korean traditional instruments, in particular, thedanso, or adults who are interested in traditional music but have not had the time or opportunity. The “dan” in the instrument’s name means “short,” and “so” refers to the notched, end-blown vertical bamboo flute used in Korean folk music. The instrument is derived from the Chinese xiao and is used as an educational tool in Korean primary schools, much like the recorder is used in Western nations. The students will learn the basic skills of how to play popular Korean folk songs, such as Arirang song and Dorasi song on the danso. For this workshop, KPAC will invite a special instructor, gamin, from Korea who is considered an expert in the traditional Korean wind-blown instruments, such as piri (Korean double reed instrument) and saengwhang (ancient instrument).

On the last day of the workshop, the organization will offer students a completion certificate. Participants of all skill levels are welcome (from beginner to expert, from kids to adults). We will accept only 10 people in order of application for a class. To RSVP, please call us at 212-921-9344 or email us at edu@kpacnyc.org
