    Add to cart

    Come enjoy 90 minutes of “fiddle caroling;” From Irving Berlin’s classic White Christmas to Jule Styne’s Let it Snow, many Christmas carols were written by the greatest songwriters of all time, and they have become part of the Great American Songbook. We’ll be playing these songs in a swing style, and it just doesn’t get any classier than that! Our song list also includes a blues Jingle Bells, and a waltz, It Came Upon a Midnight Clear – as well as many more favorites. To honor both sides of my roots, we’ll also play Chanukah Oh Chanukah and a very cool, minor key surprise. This class will be accompanied by a songbook. Learn these gems to bring home for the holidays (whether in person or on Zoom). Share the gift of your music with friends and family this holiday season!

    Add to cart

    Texas-style fiddle tunes are my heart and soul. With a rich history, driving rhythm, and beautiful longbow technique, they make the fiddle sound perfectly beautiful. We’ve already learned an 8 part breakdown (Durang’s Hornpipe), a waltz (Fifty Years Ago), a rag (Black and White Rag), and now it’s time to learn a fiddle tune arrangement from one of the greats, Benny Thomasson. Learn the origin of the tune and explore the creation of each developed variation. By learning a classic Texas style fiddle tune arranged by one of the giants of Texas fiddling note for note and bow for bow, you can play along with his recording and internalize his true fiddling style. You’ll begin to notice a natural ease seep into your playing. This is the key to smooth bowing, intonation, and gaining an authentic Texas-style sound. 

    Learn the tune step-by-step, by ear, over the course of two class times. The sheet music and a guitar back-up track are included. With a week off a week to solidify, smooth, and memorize the fiddle tune; In the third class, I’ll offer individual feedback on how to sound your best and how to personalize the tune.
