Fun Fiddle – absolute beginners fiddle class

Absolute beginners fiddle class

Are you an absolute beginner looking for a fiddle class in Edinburgh to join in 2017? I’ll be teaching a new Fun Fiddle absolute beginners fiddle class on Thursday evenings in Portobello. Enrolment has just opened – you can enrol online via the Fun Fiddle website

This class is now fully booked


This new class starts on Thursday 19th January 2017, and will run for 10 weeks in the spring term. There will be a mid-term break on Thursday 16th February. The class is for adults who have never played a fiddle before. We’ll start by covering the basics of how to hold both the fiddle and the bow, and how to use the bow. Throughout the term we’ll focus on technique, and we’ll also have plenty of fun while we pick up some fiddle basics.

We’ll work up to learning some simple tunes by ear later in the term. The main focus will be on gaining a grounding in some basic technique. By the end of the first term you’ll have a good understanding of how to create a pleasing sound from your instrument. There’s no need to be able to read music, or to have had any previous musical experience, to join this class.
