Adult Classes

Fun Fiddle adult classes Autumn 2020

As  we are still  in an uncertain phase, due to Coronavirus pandemic Fun Fiddle will offer a patchwork of small  group / one to one lessons face to  face, by arrangement, as well as online. These will be held in tutor’s  homes or online, as The Wash House venue remains closed at present. Payment and enrolment for lessons/ small groups can be arranged individually with tutors.

Intermediate and Advanced levels will not be running as full classes, but individual/ small group arrangements with tutors Rona Wilkie, and Gica Loening, are available on request. The Improving Beginners class will continue to run online with Ros Gasson

Zoom lessons for newbies

Using the zoom online platform can feel like a new and intimidating experience. If this is the case for you, then we are happy to give all  the help and   advice needed to get  set up to have online lessons.  It will never be better than face to face lessons, and where possible we hope to continue these  in one to lessons or very small groups. But in the mean time, zoom adds another helpful  option to keep us all fiddlin’. Give it  a try and see how it works for you!

Do I need to be able to read music?

There’s NO need to be able to read music for our classes and lessons! Our fiddle classes are based on learning by ear, but sheet music is also available on our repertoire page on the website and in our Fun Fiddle tune books

Learning by ear can seem daunting to some and easy to others. The important thing to know is that it gets easier the more you try it. At Fun Fiddle we teach a tune very slowly in sections, with as much repetition as required.   Once a tune has been learnt and played over, in the more advanced classes we will look at bowing and ornamentation. Classes will also include warm-ups, focus on technique, and simple exercises.
