Continuing Fiddlers: 3½ - 5 years

$424 ($404 members) · 60 minutes · Weekly for 16 weeks · 3½ - 5 years

Fiddlers: Continuing is a non traditional violin method rooted in folk tradition. In this class we will continue the concepts learned in Fiddlers Beginning.

Students will learn to play folk songs by ear through dancing, singing, and percussion. Posture and position will continue to be emphasized as well as left hand development and bow technique. This level may be repeated multiple times until your child is ready to move into Intermediate Fiddle. Students will also benefit from socialization with their peers.

The Kids’ Fiddle Program is aligned with other Kids’ and Adult programming allowing them to participate in a wide array of open jams and other musical events.

Prerequisites

For children who have taken at least one session of Beginning Fiddlers or have had 4 months of instruction on the violin.

Special Info

This is a parent/child class. Parents will be asked to join class and participate by singing, dancing, and even playing along. Parent participation is crucial to the musical development of your child. Parents’ presence is comforting and your knowledge will help with practice sessions during the week.

Our Fiddle Books are a great resource for helpful hints and songs for your young fiddlers to play!

Children must bring a violin to the first day of class. Find information for purchase and rental here.
