Fiddle Camp 

One week session  
July 5–8 
9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m. 
Rising 4th  through rising 12th graders 


PREREQUSITE: At least two years of violin experience or completion of Suzuki Book 1. Students should be comfortable playing scales in first position. 

Do you love to play the violin? Do you want to learn how to play fiddle music? It’s easy and fun! Fiddle tunes are simple and you can even learn them by ear – we can show you how. You will learn to play Irish music, Bluegrass, and other fiddle styles. Each day starts with an easy warm-up. We will then listen to different kinds of fiddle music, see how the tunes are put together, and try them out for ourselves. We will read some from sheet music, but many of them we will learn by ear. After lunch, we can get creative and even make up our own tunes. On Friday, July 10 at 3 p.m. we will have a jam session. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 pandemic precautions, family and friends are not permitted on campus to watch our performance, but a recording will be available. So join us and have some foot-stompin’ fun!
