• Intermediate/Advanced fiddle with Matt Rolland
Workshop topics/immersion classes include:
- Cross Tuned Fiddling,
- Back-Up Fiddling,
- Southwestern and Arizona Fiddle Tunes,
- Songwriting (with Bekah Rolland)
Matt will focus on style and bowing techniques that give fiddle tunes their groove. This workshop is meant for students (young and adult) with some experience on the violin, even if they’ve never fiddled, and more experienced fiddlers looking to expand their repertoire and sound. We will spend our time addressing topics in master class style, practicing bowing techniques, and learning several tunes by ear. Sheet music will also be available.
Along the way, we can also cover techniques for the bow hold and bow arm to get your best tone, especially when playing quick tunes, tricks for improving your intonation, and some style tips for ‘sounding like a fiddler’. This is a great track if you’re looking to learn news tune while charting a road-map for improving your playing.
