Jam Session Survival Guide - Vi Wickam - ASTA 2023

Take the First Steps to Connect with Your Local Folk Music Community

Do you want include local fiddle styles and improvisation in your teaching, but don’t know where to start? Eclectic jam sessions are an inviting space to learn and already exist in your community. If you’re nervous about jumping in, join us to learn how to participate in community folk groups.

Vi—joined by Matt Manweiler and Evie Andrus—will cover proper jam session etiquette, playing in different fiddle traditions, and most importantly- connecting these communities and styles to your students.

This session will take place on Friday March 17, 2023 from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM in Regency Ballroom T as part of the American String Teachers Association national conference in Orlando, Florida.
