For the autumn term we’ll be running this class as a monthly evening class, learning together in a group face to face. There will also be an option to join with other members of Fun Fiddle on intervening weeks to play together through our core repertoire of tunes.
Our improving beginners fiddle class focuses on troubleshooting, looking at specific techniques, learning more about bow control, reading music, and different tune types and rhythms. We’ll be looking at tips and tricks for making our playing more expressive. This term we’ll particularly be working on building confidence in playing together with others. We’ll also have plenty of fun while we pick up some more fiddle basics!
The class is a continuation of the absolute beginner’s class which started in January 2019. It’s suitable for anyone who can pick up tunes on their own by ear. You’ll need your own instrument to attend. There’s no need to be able to read music to join Fun Fiddle classes. See a short summary of the things the Improving Beginners class has covered in previous terms
Recordings of any new tunes are sent out in advance of classes for individuals to learn at home.
If you’re unsure if you’re at a level to be able to join this class, or would like a refresher before joining, it may be possible to take some individual online lessons before the classes start. Contact me for more information
If you want to know more about what we will be doing in this class, and whether it will be suitable for you, contact me, and I’ll do my best to answer any questions.
If you’d like me to email you to let you know when enrolment opens for this and future classes, workshops and retreats, please sign up to my mailing list.
In the unlikely event that Coronavirus restrictions are brought in which prohibit the group meeting face to face, classes will continue online for the remainder of the term
I don’t want anyone to be put off joining us on the basis of cost. If you would struggle to pay the full fee for the class and would like to join us, please get in touch using the contact form
