This course is a continuation of Advanced Beginning Fiddle. Students are expected to have a solid understanding of basic fiddle techniques. We will build a repertoire of basic and popular session tunes, while adding more ornamentation and other stylistic techniques. All students must have a recording device, as all tunes will be taught by ear, without sheet music.
