In this course Mi­chael Metz­ler will take the par­ti­ci­pants into the world of his­to­ri­cal per­cus­sion art. Like no other he has a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence and know­ledge about the per­cus­sion and its history. From the tra­di­tio­nal way of play­ing the tam­bou­rine to his­to­ri­cal cas­ta­nets and his­to­ri­cal “sound ef­fects” this work­shop is sure to hold a sur­prise or two.
