We are passionate about education, workshop facilitation and sharing the aural traditions which we have spent years studying including Klezmer, Roma, Balkan, Improvisation and folk music from the British Isles.
We have led workshops at KlezFest London, SOAS, Newcastle University, Jackdaws, Benslow, The Sage, Fire In The Mountain Festival, WOMADelaide, Play for Progress, Tots Tunes.
Workshops can be adapted to all ages and abilities.
"We really enjoyed the workshop with Fran & Flora! Their expertise was invaluable in helping us play better together as an ensemble, and they had lots of great arrangement ideas. In addition their idiomatic knowledge of klezmer gave us fresh insight into playing this style"
- SOAS Klezmer Band
