Slow Lab for Old-time Strings



TERM 3, 2024

INSTRUCTOR: Andy Howard (bio)
DAY/TIME: Wed – 6pm, In-person
LEVEL: Intermediate

You have quite a few tunes learned which you can play at a fast jam speed. So, now let’s slow down the tempo and work on techniques, improving the tone and style for these tunes. Let’s work on some complex phrases and skills that can be studied and tackled as we back off of the speed pedal and break down the underlying skills.

Playing at dance speed is fun, of course, but let’s also be sure the tunes are played with quality. Let’s use this opportunity to make beautiful old-time music at a slower pace and foster the growth of our playing.

This class is for intermediate players and above.

This class meets in person.
