This is a great class for folks looking to open the doors to the boundless, joyful, and sometimes slightly obscure world of fiddle music!

We’ll listen to a bunch of tunes, walk away with a few basic techniques, and perhaps learn the secret to the age-old question – What’s the difference between the violin and the fiddle?

Registration Includes

Progressive and easy-to-follow instruction in a welcoming group setting.

Skill Level

No relevant experience required

Best for Ages…

13 and up

You should bring…

You should bring a fiddle (or a violin), note paper and something to write with. If your fiddle hasn’t been played for a long time, it would be helpful to bring it to a music shop to have it set up. If you have a tuner, bring it along.

NOTE: One registration option includes rental of a fiddle for the duration of class.
