This workshop will feature Irish and American fiddle tunes. Finn will start by doing some fun warm-ups and then learn the tunes by ear. We will learn the tunes in a call and response style. He plans to show the kids some “Fiddle tricks,” as well, to keep them interested. This will include chopping, beatboxing, some cool bowings and fiddle pyrotechnics.
