Intermediate Fiddle with Deborah Payne - Begins July 31st from 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM - Price: $144
Workshop Instructor: Deborah Payne

Participants will learn in this intermediate fiddle learnshop:
• How to play a few intermediate level fiddle tunes from the Appalachian old time music repertoire.
• Bowing exercises and techniques to help make practice at home most effective.
• How to play the fiddle with other musicians in different settings (i.e. playing for dancers, accompanying singers, jamming, etc.)

Please bring a fiddle and bow that are in good, playable condition. All Singing Bird Music School learnshops will focus on learning music “by ear” (the listen and repeat method). It is not necessary for students to know how to read music before they attend the school. Instructors may provide some chord charts, song lyrics, etc. but the reading of formal musical notation will not be taught.

Prerequisites: Students should know how to tune the fiddle and how to play at least ten basic fiddle tunes from memory at tempo.
