In this seminar, Kelly Thoma will share with her students the knowledge which she has acquired over the years from Ross Daly as well as from other master musicians of various different traditions who have significantly influenced her musical world. She will analyze techniques, repertoire, as well as certain ways of working delicately and carefully with certain aspects of harmony which facilitate the playing of two or more such lyras together. This is something which she has been working on with Ross for the last 10 years. Depending on the level of the students in the seminar, she will devote more or less time to exercises for the right hand bowing technique as well as to strengthening the left hand fingering for the sake of greater accuracy with regards to the intervals.
