What's the difference between a violin and a fiddle? Fiddles make you dance! In this class, students will learn to play jigs, waltzes, reels, hornpipes and polkas and study how each tune is composed. Instruction will combine traditional learning by ear and simple sheet music.
This class is designed for students ages 10-15 with at least 1 year of violin lessons or school orchestra.
