Apply your theory knowledge to your fiddling and sound great jamming on those good ol’ singin’ songs. Let’s begin to apply the music theory that you’ve learned — say, in Fiddle School, Theory 101 or just around the campfire. Whether you feel like you’re still getting a grasp on theory or are pretty comfortable with it already, this class will offer a fresh perspective on how the theory and making music pieces fit together. It can be a challenge when you show up to a singing jam and someone looks to you to play on a song that maybe you’ve heard for years, but haven’t played before. Jamming Skills 1 will give you the tools to do just that. We’ll connect the theory dots and the jamming dots, and jamming will become more fun!

No matter what you do with the knowledge and skills from this class, you’ll up your level of musicianship. I hope you’ll join me for my first webinar back from medical leave. I can’t wait to see you!

If you are interested in working on your music theory foundation first, check out Theory 101: A Fiddler’s Toolkit in the Fiddle School store. It is a four-class course that I taught earlier this year, available now for purchase. Watch all four classes and study the handouts, and you’ll be well on your way to taking advantage of Jamming Skills.
