Beginning Fiddle & Mandolin

$130

with Harry Bolick

Calendar Next available session starts Jan 25, 2023 at 7 pm, runs for 4 weeks

While learning a new tune each week, we will cover basic bowing patterns, scales, a bit of music theory, and touch on the history of the music and each tune. Special attention will be given to demonstrating the melody as it relates to the chords that a backup instrument would provide. The goal is to bring all of these bits of fiddle lore together in a way that will help a developing fiddler recognize patterns in the music so that they can more quickly join in the fun of jam sessions. In the subsequent weeks, we will build on what we have learned, covering a more varied and more complex set of tunes and developing second fiddle parts to "back up" the melody fiddler. The class will be adjusted to meet the abilities and needs of the students. This class is for adults and mature teenagers of all skill levels.

Students will bring their own instruments. If you need help finding one to rent, please contact us at education@garrisonartcenter.org
