OLDTIME FIDDLE - DAKOTA KARPER
SATURDAY, MAY 9TH / 2:30-4:30PM
WORKSHOP LEVEL: Advancing Beginner/Intermediate Fiddlers
The focus of this class will be to expand repertoire with tunes played in Eastern West Virginia, while diving deeper into rhythm, intonation, melody, bowing techniques, and finally tips and tricks for painless posture. This workshop is geared towards those who already are proficient at the basics of playing their instrument and who are looking to expand their knowledge and hone their skills. We will be learning by ear in a traditional aural format (no written handouts will be provided). This class will aim to inspire confidence in your own abilities as a musician, inspire joyful practice and increase finesse as a fiddler. Bring a device to record so you can continue to work on what we have covered once the class has ended.
$25 (Plus applicable state tax)
