Project Description

***this residency has limited availability left for 21-22 school year***

You’ll be amazed how quickly students can learn to strum full tunes on the fiddle in this engaging and active music program.

This string-teaching residency program is designed for an entire school to learn the fiddle (violin) and culminates in a school-wide recital. In a very short time, students acquire enough basic skills on the fiddle to be able to perform a three chord 2 step fiddle tune with guitar accompaniment. In addition, students will learn enough technique to produce sound effects to musically illustrate a short folk story narrated by the instructor.

This program is for students K-12, with kindergarten participation in an abbreviated version of the program. A minimum of four 45 minute consecutive sessions per class is recommended, with the fourth session serving as a recital performed for attending parents and students. Fiddles are provided.

Final Product
Students learn how to play the fiddle (violin). In 3 days students acquire enough skills to perform in a recital on the 4th day.
