Fiddle For Young Violinists
Fiddle For Young Violinists with Blakeley Burger
This class will meet online - an invitation to a recurring Zoom meeting will be sent by the instructor in advance of the first class meeting.
Fiddle for Young Violinists is an eight-week course for high school students designed to enhance violin technique and overall musicianship by employing various styles of fiddling. While classes will give students the opportunity to review scales and foundational technique exercises, the course will also provide the unique opportunity to strengthen aural skills as we utilize audio recordings to learn fiddle melodies by ear.
Entrance requirements: In order to participate, students must fill out the brief application and submit an audition recording in video format in the audition form below. The video recording should include:
- 2 or 3 Octave scale in a key of the student’s choice
- One brief excerpt from a piece of current repertoire
