I was so proud of all the student performances this past weekend at our Russian Fiddle Student Concert! It was especially special to all be together once again and making music in a group! Enjoy a clip from the grand finale of our concert- all the student together performing "Khorovod," a traditional Russian round dance tune!
Hello fiddlers and friends! On July 14 I will start my Irish Fiddle Group Class again!
This class will be a 6 week session occurring weekly on Wednesdays at 7:30pm on Zoom. This class will be a little different than my usual Irish fiddle group classes. This class will focus specifically on Irish fiddle bowings. Bowings are a HUGE part of creating a true Irish sound, and being able to identify the note patterns that lend themselves to specific bowings will help you when learning new tunes for the rest of your musical career!
In this class you will be given the sheet music for each tune prior to class, and each week we will go through the basic notes of the tune then dive deeper into understanding bowings and note patterns in the tune. By the end of the 6 week session you will have learned 6 traditional Irish fiddle tunes, and the specific bowings and note patterns to create a true Irish sound! This class is going to be so much fun!! I encourage every student that has been playing their instrument for at least one year to join this exciting class! It is $72 for the 6 week session. CLICK HERE to sign up!
Yes it's time for the next student concert! We are so excited to offer TWO concerts on July 18- an in person concert at the Fiddle Lessons PDX home studio at 2pm and an online concert via Zoom at 4pm. I can't wait to hear all the students' performances of their Russian fiddle tunes and the group piece, Khorovod!
