Drunken Fiddles!

Drunken Fiddles is a group class for adults who would like to learn how to play the fiddle. During the 6 week class participants will learn a new fiddle tune each week in a relaxed group environment. We drink wine, we laugh, we have fun and, most importantly, we fiddle! Each class is taught by violinist/fiddler Laurel Parks (link to bio) whose background includes classical training, fiddling, composing and improvisation.

3 LEVELS

First Time Beginner Class

This workshop is for people who have never played before or feel they need to get a refresher on the basic fundamentals of fiddle including how to hold the bow/violin, string names, tone production, etc. We will learn a few tunes + scales in the fiddle keys!

Beginner

This workshop is a step above the first time beginner level. We will learn tunes piece by piece with sheet music. Tempos will be slow to moderate. Some tunes will have multiple harmonies to choose from. Plan on learning a new tune each week.!

Intermediate-Advanced

This workshop level is for people who want to be pushed and challenged with learning tunes quickly at a fast tempo. A focus will be on style, driven bowing techniques and double stops.
