A message from Kathleen Pixley of Grand Lake Festivals:
We hope you are making plans to attend the Jana Jae Fiddle Camp held each year during Labor Day weekend, this year Aug. 31, Sept. 1 & 2, 2012, in Grove, OK at the Grove Civic Center with evening activities at Snider’s Camp on beautiful Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees. This enjoyable musical learning experience is focused on helping participants improve their musical skills, stage presence and the overall art of music.
Not just for fiddlers — violin, viola, cello, mandolin, guitar, bass, and other string and rhythm instruments are included, and the workshop is open to participants regardless of age or prior experience. Jana Jae and approximately 20 master teachers help participants improve their musical skills, teach the importance of music in our society today and focus on specific musical goals.
Workshop classes at the Fiddle Camp include demonstrations and instruction in many styles, including Celtic, Bluegrass, Old-Time, Contest Fiddling and Cajun. Musicians from all backgrounds, cultures and age groups have the opportunity to learn new tunes, different styles, interpretation, phrasing, arranging and improvisation. Each participant has the opportunity to enjoy playing on stage before an audience, as a soloist or in a group, using helpful instructions and tips on how to play with groups, how best to perform in contests and how to engage an audience.
