The Cello class continues as normal on Monday

Viola Class Description

The viola class will cover; tunes (from a range of folk traditions), techniques for adapting tunes to the viola, creating harmonies/counter melodies, ornaments, bowing, chords and rhythm. The class level will be intermediate to advanced but with easier lines available to those who wish to work at a slower pace. Material will be taught by ear with sheet music (alto & treble clef) and audio recordings available after each class. 5 string fiddles are welcome to join although we won’t be using the E string!
