The focus of this class is for people that have already developed the basics of playing the fiddle and are looking to move forward. We will be drawing from the old time repertoire to explore techniques that give old time fiddle tunes unique expression. We will focus on basic elements of music and old time fiddle playing such as tone, rhythm, intonation and melody and, of course, bowing. By using these elements to teach, students will be directed, and given access to a path of musical growth, enjoyment and participation. Working in the aural tradition (no written handouts will be provided), the class will aim to inspire confidence in one's own ability to practice and learn new tunes.
Be sure to bring a recording device.
