Fiddle Lessons – On-Line – Tamarak’er Down Celtic Orchestra
October 18, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until January 10, 2021
This is an announcement about the regular 14-week classes at RCM, starting Sept. 20. They are a pretty good deal considering – 90 minutes a week for $25-35 each. We are doing them online, so I am doing my best to adapt the approach to what will be most productive on Zoom, as follows. The “Learn to Play” Class Monday is more focused on improving your technical skills (the year for Old Time Canadian rep) – lots of bowing phrasing, tone and overall how-tos-ound-better, while Sunday’s “ensemble” will focus more on harmony and back-up skills.

Tamarack’er Down Celtic Orchestra
Sundays, 1pm – ~3:30 pm
Cost: $355, 14 weeks, Sept. 11-Jan. 10.
Taught Online. Since we can’t hear each other to play as a true ensemble, this fall’s class will focus more on the skills involved in playing back-up – harmony, chords, rhythmic ideas etc. Students will be encouraged to play melody or harmony individually for the rest of the class to play along with. By term end, we will aim to have everyone submit a recording of their part done to a click track (metronomes are easily available on google to listen to while you record) and I will assemble them into a group performance. Magic!
