Scottish Fiddle Technique

Scottish Fiddle Technique

This workshop will be focused on a more advanced level of fiddle playing. We’ll get into the nuts and bolts of strathspeys, reels, jigs, marches, etcetera, and also talk about the overall fiddle techniques I use in my playing: my bow grip, and bowings used in various tune types, the use of ornamentation, rhythm, and groove. I always teach by ear (no sheet music), and I welcome and encourage my students to utilize their phones for video and audio recording for future reference.
