Caffè Lena School of Music: Old Time Fiddle Course with Bruce Molsky
Four Sat afternoon classes at 2:30 PM
Feb 13, 20, 27 & Mar 6 We’ll take a fun and intense hands-on approach in Bruce’s old time fiddle workshop. Tunes are taught a phrase at a time, first melody, then bowing, and then piecing things together. We'll dig into old-time music's unique phrasing, rhythm and syncopation, intonation, etc. The tune is the vehicle, so mostly we'll be playing! If enough folks are interested, we can also spend some time working on singing with the fiddle.
Caffè Lena School of Music: Clawhammer Banjo Course with Bruce Molsky
Four Sat afternoon classes at 12:00 PM
Feb 13, 20, 27 & Mar 6 We’ll look at a couple of classic tunes and focus on the important elements, like phrasing and rhythm, and work on techniques such as pull-offs, drop thumbs and rolls. Solid time is the engine behind good banjo playing, and so we’ll come back to some of the right hand basics as well that give the drive we’re all looking for.
