The 9th International Contemporary Music Festival in Tenerife (FMUC) presents two days of master classes by percussion expert Leigh Howard Stevens, a visionary of the marimba whose revolutionary method is utilised by musicians around the world. The American performer will give his lessons on 29 and 30 May from 16:00 to 19:00 at the Chamber Hall of the Tenerife Auditorium. The registration period is open now and you can sign up via e-mail at produccionfmuc@gmail.com.

The classes are aimed at intermediate and advanced percussion students although music listeners in general and composers can also participate. Stevens' repertoire encompasses everything from renaissance music and the preludes and fugues of Johann Sebastian Bach to original marimba works written by contemporary composers specifically for him. A large part of this unaccompanied literature was considered technically and musically impossible by performers until the development the new Stevens' four-mallet technique.
