Fiddle From Scratch (and Squeak) part I
A Two Part intro to the violin with Elderly Instruments instructor Bob McCloy!
Saturday , January 05, 2008
Location: Elderly Instruments
Beginning fiddle hurts the ears. Dogs howl, and the family banishes you to somewhere far away. The focus of this two part workshop is presentation of fundamental techniques to get you through that trying time before the dog runs away, and the family kicks you out.
Workshop I will present instruction on holding the fiddle and bow, posture, hand positioning, and introduction to a couple scales and bow patterns. You will leave not only with a tune to play, but the background to start learning more tunes more easily.
Both workshops will include a booklet and accompanying CD. There will be no need for the ability to read music (although it never hurts!). For Ages 10 and up.
A conscientious and thorough instructor who wants to help his students excel, Bob provides beneficial hand-out materials to help students practice more effectively following the workshop. Tape recorders are welcome in the class, but all course material will be provided in a course pack that includes a CD and written music.
Bob McCloy has been a popular and successful music instructor (in all levels and styles of guitar, mandolin, and fiddle) for nearly 30 years. The experience he has acquired teaching thousands of students to play enables them to become musically self-sufficient while turning their "work" into pure pleasure.
