Fiddle Camp: August 17 – 21
The KSMA Fiddle Camp brings together outstanding performers and teachers in Celtic, Old Time and Bluegrass, Contra, Klezmer, Rock, and Gypsy Jazz styles for a week of learning new tunes and techniques, making friends, and collaborating.
Our morning camp focuses on learning fiddle tunes and developing fiddle style and technique. For players with no previous experience with fiddling, the morning camp is a great place to start! Sessions each morning include learning new tunes and practicing ornamentations, bowing, improvisation, style, accompanying, soloing, and tune writing in a variety of folk traditions
In the afternoon, we split into fiddle bands and work on our fiddling skills in small groups led by coaches creating unique collaborations for a performance at the end of the week.
We welcome campers of any age who play the violin, viola, cello, bass, piano, guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, piano, and more! No experience in fiddling is necessary for camp, but prospective campers should be past “Etude” in Suzuki book 1 or be able to play in A, D, and G Major.
