Woori Center is excited to announce Explore Korean Music Through Danso, a virtual ten week-long Korean music class with a master Korean musician, Gamin Kang, for Fall 2022. The course is offered free for Woori Center members, and for non-members, $20 of registration fee is charged. Our 60-minute classes will consist of 30-minute lectures and 30-minute practical lessons. Our lessons will take place on Mondays from 8 to 9PM, starting on September 19th and ending on November 14th.
Gamin Kang, simply known as “gamin,” a distinguished NYC soloist, tours the world performing both traditional Korean music and cross-disciplinary collaborations. Gamin plays piri (double reed Korean oboe), taepyeonso (double-reed horn), and saenghwang (mouth organ). She is a designated Yisuja, official holder of Important Intangible Cultural Asset No. 46 for Court and Royal Military music.
We want to offer this space as an opportunity for us to take care of ourselves, as playing Danso and learning about the calming music can reduce your stress and strengthen your immune system. Moreover, Gamin will help you explore various types of Korean music and learn about the songs our parents and their parents sang for centuries!
Woori Center asks that students come prepared with their own instrument or purchase a Danso through us!
