Intermediate-Advanced Fiddle

These courses will help the more experienced player learn skills in lead development, harmony and improvisation in various styles from folk, to bluegrass, to swing and jazz. We will focus on style and bowing techniques that give fiddle tunes their groove. This workshop is meant for students with 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, building melody lines, learning several tunes by ear, and developing confidence in your own musical voice.
