The Alphorn, a piece of Switzerland
The alphorn is a typically Swiss instrument. With its natural sounds it sounds archaic and primeval and reminds us of the mountains and our homeland. In the alphorn workshop you will get to know this instrument better, try to play it and even record a song with your team. A great opportunity to experience something new together - or to bring foreign employees, customers and business partners a bit closer to Switzerland.
The workshop (as a short version or with team song)
You can book the workshop as a one-hour short version, in which you try to elicit some sounds from the alphorn. In the two-hour workshop you will learn a simple melody under the guidance of a passionate alphorn player. You will not only learn the traditional form of playing the alphorn, but also discover that the alphorn is ideally suited as an improvisation and world music instrument. If you wish, you can make a recording of the piece you have practiced together.
Venue and larger groups
The workshop can be held in a suitable room of your choice, in good weather also outside. For larger groups (10 persons or more) it is advisable to combine the workshop with other traditional activities, for example with horn making, skewer making, a visit to a distillery etc. Let us put together a tailor-made programme for you.
