Aaron says about their class at Virtual Camp:
We’ll be learning the beautiful traditional Croatian song “Pjevaj Mi Pjevaj, Sokole” (“Sing to me, falcon”). Together we will learn the chords, melody, stylistic elements, and lyrics. There will be learning opportunities for both instrumentalists and vocalists. I will demonstrate the foundation of the tune for beginners, and elaborate with ornaments for more advanced musicians. All ages and skill levels are welcome to join this workshop!
