The year is passing swiftly it seems, and we are planning our classes for the last Block of this academic year. We will be taking a week off on 29th May, and the workshops will begin again on Weds 5th June for 5 weeks. We will then take an extended break over the summer.
For this block Stewart will be looking at one of the definitive tune forms of the North East, the triple time hornpipe with Level 2 Style class and has chosen some great examples to look at in depth. Melissa will be teaching the Level 3 Style class and will be exploring some of the fantastic tunes by Canadian fiddler Oliver Schroer. As usual, Melissa and Stewart will swap groups for the Technique classes, which will teach exercises and techniques geared up to support the Style class repertoire, but are equally applicable to so much other repertoire and general musicianship.
If you are an adult fiddle player who is looking for a supportive and encouraging group in which to improve your playing, with expert tuition at all levels, then do consider joining us. Resources are provided each week in the form of recordings of the tunes and exercises, as well as notation and there is always time for informal chats over coffee & biscuits between the classes!
