Whether you call it a fiddle or a violin, learn the basics needed to play simple tunes!
This beginning level class will teach the basics of playing the violin with the goal of having students emerge from the class with the confidence and techniques necessary to play simple fiddle tunes. Tuning, bowing, scales, intonation, and tunes will be taught in this first step into the fascinating and fun world of fiddling. This course is designed for people who have never before picked up the fiddle/violin. If you are conversant with the instrument, it is recommended that you instead take classes that focus on style and/or genre. Students should purchase the Don’t Fret Fingerboard marker - please contact the instructor to purchase: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ages 10 and up welcome!
