This summer I had the extraordinary opportunity to travel to Colmar, France to take Theremin lessons from two of the finest Theremin players in the world, Thierry Frenkel and Carolina Eyck. The academy drew players, twenty in all, from all over Europe and North America. Over five days I took private lessons from Carolina and participated in workshops about advanced theremin playing, improvisation and instrument maintenance. I had the privilege to sit in on practices of Thierry’s theremin ensemble comprised of players from all over Europe. After long days of classes I got to socialize with new friends at a cafe in the Colmar town square in the shadow of a medieval church. I can hardly wait to attend another academy. What a life altering experience!
