Angelike is a collector, restorer, seller and teacher of Antique Chord Zithers.
Angie believes that an instrument very popular around 100 years ago might be just the thing to deal with the stresses of the 21st century. Apart from their stunning looks, after carefully restored to their former glory, what makes these instruments so right for our time are the unique tune-sheets that were designed and written specifically for the Chord Zither.
With the tune-sheets slipped under the melody strings, anyone can play a tune without the ability to read music. Add to this their ethereal, harp-like sound and Chord Zithers provide instant fun, allowing the budding musicians to just play – hitting the musical floor ….running … so to speak.
Original manuals claim that it only takes an hour to learn to play. This workshop sets out to prove this claim. Apart from learning all about zithers, workshop participants will be able to play beautiful music by the end of the workshop.
