Workshop Instructor: Lucian Parker

This learnshop welcomes beginning musicians. No previous experience playing a fiddle is required. Musicians who have some experience playing fiddle and want to review the basics are also welcome to participate.
Participants will learn in this beginning fiddle learnshop:
• How to tune the fiddle, hold the bow and play several scales.
• How to play a few basic fiddle tunes and familiar songs that build confidence.
• Bowing exercises and techniques to help make practice at home most effective.
• How to play the fiddle with other musicians.

Please bring a fiddle and bow that are in good, playable condition. All Singing Bird Music School learnshops will focus on learning music “by ear” (the listen and repeat method). It is not necessary for students to know how to read music before they attend the school. Instructors may provide some chord charts, song lyrics, etc. but the reading of formal musical notation will not be taught.
