2nd International Summer Lyre Academy 2019

Dear lyre players,

From the 14th to the 21st of July 2019 the second academy for advanced players will take place at the Lindenhof Hemmersheim near Würzburg. For seven days, there will be musical work together, and then on Friday, July 19, there will be a public concert of participants and lecturers, probably at Schloss Seehaus, the site of the first International Summer Lyre Academy.

We would like to continue the work of last year at Schloss Seehaus with this academy and take another step towards an intensive free lyre education. For 2019, we will work with the theme of dynamics – the span from the almost inaudible to the full sound development. (See related article here.)

For more information or to register (until June 15th), please see the Events section of leier-forum.com or contact Martin at martin@tobiassen.de or Christian at ruebenrudi@gmx.de.

The Sacred Gateway: Conscious Living, Conscious Dying, and the Journey Beyond

A national conference on death and dying sponsored by the Anthroposophical Society will take place in Sacramento, CA, on April 6-8, 2018. This conference will especially honor Nancy Poer and all the threshold work she has contributed over the years. It will hopefully be the first of three conferences, one in each region. It will be of interest to anyone contemplating their own transition or caring for loved ones approaching the threshold. Early in the planning stages, the committee clearly wished for artistic activities to be a big part of the conference, and are very enthusiastic about the involvement of the lyre. We are forming a group of lyrists, mostly on the West coast for this first conference, who want to be a part of a performing group or contribute to a workshop on Music at the Threshold. If we have missed you, and you would like to be involved, either in the first or future conferences, please contact Marianne Dietzel at mariannemdietzel@gmail.com. We hope the collaboration between eurythmists, lyrists and spoken word artists will bring to life the journey of the soul between death and a new birth in a beautiful way.

The Association for Waldorf Music Education will offer our annual summer conference from July 9th through the 14th - one week before the LANA Conference in the very same venue - the Michael Fields Institute in East Troy, Wisconsin, just outside of Milwaukee.  Our guest presenter will be Christiaan Boele, master teacher of the Werbeck approach to singing. Christiaan conducts master classes, courses, and trainings around the world out of the work of The School for Uncovering the Voice. In addition, students from many countries travel to Christiaan for private voice study.  He also leads a touring ensemble of twelve singers and continues to perform as a soloist.

Waldorf teachers, care givers, parents, and all students of music will benefit personally from working with the Werbeck exercises in addition to learning how to bring a healthy model of singing to our children and to others. Both personal and pedagogical aspects of Werbeck singing will be covered, and the conference will also include content from the Waldorf music pedagogy and curriculum, including hands on experience with flute, lyre, Spatial Dynamics, and more.

We invite everyone to join us in July in East Troy for our 2017 AWME Summer Music Cheilaonference with Christiaan Boule during week before the LANA Conference.  We hope that many friends will take advantage of TWO renowned master teachers in the same venue during back to back weeks at the beautiful Michael Fields Institute!

Registration for the conference will be open soon at waldorfmusic.org or contact Andrea Lyman at themusicpainter@gmail.com for more information.

Musical Experience as Light on the Path: Guidance and Healing through Rudolf Steiner’s Six Auxiliary Exercises With Gotthard Killian

How do we cultivate creativity in the age of news media and technology? 

What kind of "life tech" will best help us to harness the forces within and around us in order to navigate the modern world as free human beings? 

Rudolf Steiner provided six exercises to help us discern our relationship to the many voices that ask for our energy and attention. We will work with these exercises in relation to the musical forces in the world, the cosmos, the earth, and the human soul. The gesture of the interval will guide us from its planetary expression in the Harmony of the Spheres to the inner soul experience and from there to social harmony.

Singing and Conducting for Class & Music Teachers and Group Leaders with Jeffrey Spade

One of the distinguishing aspects of working in a Waldorf school is vocal music.  Whether it is the purity of the young voices, the glorious rounds that accompany the morning lessons, or the older classes finding their way to singing four-part harmony, music permeates the day. The class teacher and the music teacher alike have the joyous challenge of leading this singing with every student in class. 

Part of this challenge lies in how to lead the music.  When do you let it flow? When does it need direction? This course will encompass a range of music from easy pentatonic songs from the early grades to challenging songs in four-part harmony.

Resonare

Foundation Studies in Music Out of Anthroposophy

 

Resonare begins a new cycle in September 2013. 

This course, currently in its 6th year, is open to all who have an interest in exploring the elements of music. The primary focus is on developing one’s capacities for listening and investigating the qualities of tone. For this exploration, we turn to the lyre with its unique ability to release musical tone from the physicality of the instrument. Course content includes singing, music theory, and the study of Rudolf Steiner’s lectures on the nature of music. Participants explore the relationship to intervals and are given the opportunity to apply this understanding to improvisation.  Movement sessions, including Spacial Dynamics and Eurythmy, form an important aspect of each weekend.

Working in a small group, the structure is designed to provide ample time for experiential learning in a supportive environment. The schedule for the Resonare Music Foundation course consists of five long weekends from September 2013 through May 2014. We begin with a supper each Thursday evening and end by mid-day Sunday.

The dates for the 2013-2014 cycle are: Sept 12-15, Nov 7-10, Jan 9-12, Mar 6-9, May 1-4. The tuition for the full year is $1950. Sessions take place at the Harmonia Center for Instrumental and Vocal Music Therapy, based in Philmont, NY. 

*Applications are now being accepted for September.
