It’s fun to fiddle! From Ireland to Canada, Appalachia to Poland, fiddle tunes can be found all over the world. Always new and interesting, the instructor will teach tunes and techniques from various styles, traditional to contemporary. Students must be mid-way through Book 1 (with the low-2 finger pattern) or Book 2 to enroll in Fiddling 1. Students in Book 3 and above may enroll in Fiddling 2. Non-Suzuki violin players, parents and siblings may also register for this class with instructor permission.
