Intermediate Fiddle Class

This class is for the fiddler who has been playing for one or more years, who has a fairly decent repertoire, and who feels ready to tackle some new techniques and learn a little about "groove" and "feel," 

Advanced Fiddle Class

The advanced fiddler is one who is able to absorb details quickly, with solid skills in some more advanced techniques.  The ability to play in several different keys easily, knowing how to play in more than one style, and being able to demonstrate more than one bowing technique are all charateristics of an advanced fiddler.

Master Class

Troy McGillivray will be leading a fast paced masterclass where he will be teaching challenging fiddle tunes by ear. No music will be shared in advance for this class. Sign up for this class if you are an experienced player who wants to be challenged and learn a range of fiddle tunes throughout the weekend.
