Fall Fiddle Class
Fall Fiddle Class
Instructor: Michelle Edwards
This class meets Tuesdays 10:00-11:00 am
Come join Michelle for her Fall Fiddle Class - fun filled fiddling on Friday mornings in a friendly (and forgiving) focused, but free flowing environment! (ok! Enough F words!) Learn correct technique to maximize the best way to make your fiddle sing! We will work on Waltzes, standard fiddle tunes, understanding chord progressions for back beats and work on improvisation with the 12 bar blues. We will implement proven practice techniques for maximum beneficial practicing at home. For those who prefer to read music, that’s great, however for those who find fiddle tab easier we will have that available as well! Hope to see you Friday mornings at 10-11 am in Monument at Michelle’s studio! Please feel free to call her at 719-660-7459 with any questions regarding the class.
