In the String Circle fiddle class, you can learn fiddle technique in a relaxed group.
In these fun and friendly lessons we’ll be focusing on producing better tone from the fiddle, and developing relaxed playing with a strong sense of rhythm, rather than learning tunes. Most of the tunes we do learn will be common Scottish session tunes. The class can help with individual issues that participants might need to address. We play and learn new tunes by ear in this class. Written music is available online after the class, as a reminder.
The String Circle class is open to fiddle (violin) players 16 years and over, and suitable for people who have been playing for a couple of years or more.
If you’d like to find out more about what we do in the class, there are notes written each week on the fiddle class update page, with brief details of what we’ve been working on.
Ros Gasson has been teaching the String Circle fiddle class since 2009.
