Utah Old-Time Fiddlers Association Virtual Workshops
January 16, 2021
I will be teaching two workshops with the Utah Old Time Fiddlers Association via zoom. Members of the Utah Old Time Fiddlers Association will be able to attend for free as part of their membership.
10:00-11:15 MST – Improvising in Fiddle Tunes
This workshop shows how to go from playing the melody to making a tune your own. Techniques covered include chord structure, arpeggiation, passing tones, and accidentals. Have fiddle (mandolin) and questions handy for this interactive workshop.
11:30-12:45 MST – Practical Music Theory
Revealing the magic behind the music, this workshop covers the basics of music theory and how to apply them to playing music. Topics include chord changes, the circle of 5ths, chord relationships, and the Nashville Numbering System. Geared to intermediate level, all instrument players can benefit.
