 Can I Play?
Author: aminor 
Date:   2007-08-23 17:59

Hi, I have just discovered Klezmer and I am now in love. I have finally found the music that speaks to my soul (Middle Eastern). I bought a play-along Klezmer book from the music store by a Klezmer band from New York City and I can play all of the songs in there. Does that mean I can play Klezmer? I have decades of years playing American Band and Orchestral music.

I'm playing on a Bflat, R-13, 5RV, Vandoren3. Please educate me. I don't want to think I'm ready and play out and make a fool of myself. Thank you!

Also, are girls allowed in Klezmer bands? And are Gentiles allowed to play at Jewish weddings?

Toh-da (is that Yiddish for Thank you?)
