Fiddle I teaches all the basic instrument techniques. The class starts from the very beginning and is intended for those who have never played the fiddle or violin before. We will begin with learning how to tune and hold the instrument. With a focus on playing songs right from week 1, the class will progress from familiar simple melodies (ie. Mary Had a Little Lamb) to classic American fiddle tunes. Along the way you'll also learn several major scales, basic bowing and fingering techniques and how to read tablature, a simplified form of notation.
