German 9th grade students: Survey about sessions
Hello, I’m a teacher of English from Buxtehude, northern Germany interested in ITM. I’ve just introduced my class to Irish traditional music and they’ve learned what a session is. They’ve developed a little survey on sessions in general and would like to learn from some real session-goers like you what a session is like. These are their questions:
Where do you come from?
What kind of instrument do you play in your session?
What kind of mood is there in such a session?
Do musicians have regular days to do their session?
How many years do you have to play an instrument to play it
good enough to play in a session?
Can children go to a session and watch it (children like 6 years old)?
How many musicians are in a session?
Can anybody play in such a session?
Are there things like “session competitions”?
Thank you for your contributions… musical greetings… jensis
