Mastery: Session 1 Certification Program – Module 2
With Katie Glassman
Mondays: April 3, May 3, June 7, July 5 from 4:00-5:30 MDT
Prerequisite: Mastery 1 – Module 1 (for Fiddle School members only)
After working through Lessons 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, Module 2 is where we really get to delve into the musicality behind your playing. With a strong foundation in bowing, positioning, and repertoire – you’ll be playing with much more facility and dexterity than ever before. Lessons 6, 7, 8, and 9 are some of my favorite lessons because these are where I see students blossom and develop the sound they’ve always wanted to achieve. At this stage, we’ll focus on fine-tuning your tone, your intonation, developing your musicianship as we jump into every advanced bowing technique that you’ll use across multiple genres.
At Fiddle School, we take our hats off to everyone who completes the full Session 1. Still, it’s one thing to complete the session and it’s another to really feel like you’ve arrived at the next level. The Mastery Program is built to give you accountability and reinforce (as well as test) your Session 1 skills. From knowing your tunes inside and out to solidifying your bowing and positioning, you will have truly leveled up when you complete this class and get the Mastery 1 Certification. You’ll gain confidence and fluency in your playing while establishing that “natural” fiddle sound.
Lesson topics include: Tone, Intonation, Musicianship, and The Bow Arm.
