Fyne Fiddles Online


Fri 2nd – Sun 4th Oct 2020
Event link: More info and booking

For anyone out there missing being part of a fiddle class and playing as a group, we have found a way to make this possible! Online students join a handful of students in the room with the tutors Amy Geddes & Donald Knox. We have the wonderful Matt Elliot filming and mixing sound, so remote participants get close up shots of the tutor demonstrating, then see and hear the whole class when playing together.

This course is for intermediate level and up – we have some wonderful music to teach and will be looking at how to use your fingers on the bow to play smoother & faster as well as exploring steps into vibrato.
