Balkan & Eastern European
Romany and folk music
WORKSHOPS & TUITION - general
Over the past twenty years, Gundula has inspired many instrumentalists and
singers to become actively involved with Romany Gypsy music from Eastern
Europe and the Balkans.
"Gundula is an expert enabler (and performer) and fun. She is the only teacher I have met in my 5
0 plus years of learning and teaching who has cured my learning-by-ear fear..."
From masterclasses at Universities, Festivals and Academies to community
workshops, Gundula has led countless sessions for musicians of all abilities
and ages. Her ambition is to inspire people to get creative, to draw out
their hidden talents and to make everyone experience the joy of making
music with others.
"Quite different from the normal run of folk music, more challenging and more interesting..."
Gundula’s workshops are known for being fun and full of life. She has taught
both large sessions with 60 participants as well as intimate classes with 1-5 people,
both tailored according to the age and ability of the players., Gundula also provides
mixed-level sessions where whole families can join in.
"Gundula was a lovely, patient and enthusiastic teacher, working well with the participant’s skills and lack of them..."
"I’m still on a high from the FANTASTIC week-end you gave us at Benslow. You gave so much of your passion for the music, your knowledge, and your gifts as a teacher and player..."
Gundula also has produced numerous online video tutorials. These have
been invaluable in allowing her teaching to extend beyond the UK and
introduce a wider audience to a variety of Eastern European and Balkan
melodies. The tutorials are free, with new ones being added regularly.
