Finding Your Voice

  • Celtic, Trad
  • School of Music workshop


Learn how to speak on your instrument in an idiomatic way using vernacular dialects to explore regional styles from Scotland and beyond. Using dance rhythms found in traditional and non-traditional music, we explore the possibilities of different approaches to rhythm on bowed stringed instruments. Learn how to make your tune come alive by becoming a better dance fiddler, and also how to be a part of the rhythm section and contribute to the group as a more well-rounded ensemble musician. We will then develop an arrangement incorporating melody, rhythm, harmony, ‘horn’ parts, counterpoint, improvisation and more.

This workshop will be held from 2:00pm – 4:00pm ET on Monday, Jan. 18th.
