1. What makes Shivering Strings unique?

The Shivering Strings model means that sheet music and sound clips are provided prior to the weekend. Participants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the tunes ahead of time. This allows class time during the weekend to be devoted to exploring the "extras" that will help you make the tunes sound authentic, and experiement with bowings and other techniques.

If you need to borrow an instrument, please contact Patti and she will help to source one out for you to use for the weekend.
