TIME: Anytime video + live optional, alternate Monday jams
INSTRUMENT: Fiddle, Mandolin
You will learn a traditional old time American tune every week with up close instructional video links sent to you. We start with an easy basic melody for each tune, then add embellishments, chords, harmony, variations, and very essential pick or bow rhythms for that authentic sound. No music reading is required, although notation is available and playing by ear method encouraged.
In this hybrid live/video course* we will also meet every Mon night with the banjos & guitars to review our weekly tunes as a group, and enjoy an after class jam session!
* This class is an online 8-session video course that can accessed at any time and studied at your own pace. Since these videos are not a live stream service, they will not conflict with your evening classes. The class may meet in-person when conditions allow, but the videos will still be available for those students unable to participation in live sessions.
