Caffè Lena School of Music: Old Time Fiddle Course with Bruce Molsky

October 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until November 12, 2020

A four week online course taught by renowned fiddler Bruce Molsky.
We’ll take a fun and intense hands-on approach in Bruce’s old time fiddle workshop. Tunes are taught a phrase at a time, first melody, then bowing, and then piecing things together. We’ll dig into old-time music’s unique phrasing, rhythm and syncopation, intonation, etc. The tune is the vehicle, so mostly we’ll be playing! If enough folks are interested, we can also spend some time working on singing with the fiddle.
Time: The course will take place on Thursdays from 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Dates: October 22nd, 29th, November 5th and 12th
The workshop will be taught on the Zoom internet platform. Instructions for accessing the online course will be sent to you by email when you enroll.
Suggested experience level: If you have at least a small repertoire of tunes and feel comfortable learning short phrases by ear, then you’ll be fine.
