Start exploring Irish Fiddle Tunes!

This is a class for students at an intermediate level, who want to begin to explore some Irish dance music. The tunes we will be working with are ones that are standard parts of the Irish repertoire, jigs and reels.  

As we learn the tunes, we'll begin to understand some of the ornaments that Irish players use to make the tunes have a characteristic Cetic sound, particularly cuts and rolls. We'll also talk about bowing patterns used in Irish fiddling.

This is an intermediate class, for students who have completed our Fiddle 3 class, or can play several fiddle tunes at a moderate tempo. This class would also be appropriate for students who have experience playing classical violin and are interested in exploring folk traditions on their instruments.
