Kids’ Fiddle 1 is a non-traditional violin method planted in the folk tradition. 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. Students will also benefit from socialization with their peers outside of an academic environment. This class is team taught allowing your child to receive individual attention in a group setting.

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.

Special Info

Parents will often be encouraged to join the end of class and participate by singing, dancing and even playing along. Parent participation is crucial to the musical development of your child. Your knowledge will help you better understand how to help your child at home. Please come for the last 10 minutes to stay current.

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.
