We are so excited to present an IN PERSON fiddle workshop this year! Join us on February 26-27, 2022 for two days of fiddle fun! The workshop will be smaller in scale this year due to Covid-19, so class sizes are limited, as are the instructors, so sign up early to guarantee your spot!
Gordon Stobbe developed this concept many years ago - he wanted to get as much learning, playing and fun crammed into one weekend as was humanly possible! His idea has taken off and now there are Shivering Strings camps all over the country.
The central idea is this: You register EARLY, and then you will receive all of the tunes to be worked on EARLY. You will get both an audio recording of the tune and a PDF of the notes. You can listen to the tunes many times, and you play them as much as possible before the Shivering Strings Weekend. You can listen to them in your car, on your laptop, on your desktop during the day, or on your iPhone before you go to bed. You get to practice them often ahead of time, maybe with friends over Zoom, or maybe even in person, socially distancing of course!
The more you prepare, the more you get out of the weekend! We can’t emphasize that enough!
The instructors do not teach the notes, as you might have experienced in other camp settings. They will expect that you have prepared the tunes, and that way they are able to teach really fun and interesting techniques and tips that enhance the tune! (And enhance your playing!)
So please register early, and get to work on the tunes!
