Fiddle Camp

FIDDLE CAMP! Learn about, and learn to play, the fantastic and foot stomping music of America.

What is the difference between a violin and a fiddle? Attitude!

Camp is for:
Ages 9 to 12 with at least 2 - 3 years of experience on a violin, viola, cello or bass for 1/2 day
Ages 9 to 12 with at least 2 - 3 years of advanced experience on a violin, viola, cello or bass for full day
Ages 13 to 19 with at least 2 - 3 years of experience on a violin, viola, cello or bass for full day

Young musicians who already play a string instrument will receive instruction on learning to play traditional American music, music that is fun, invigorating, and part of our national heritage. Participants will also have the option of learning to play traditional 'fiddle music' instruments, such as the mandolin, ukulele, and guitar. Classes will include basic 'fiddle' music instruction, understanding how 'fiddle' music works (music theory), and both large group and small band performing.

Fiddle Camp instructors will be drawn from local experts, including members of the Colorado Springs Youth Symphony staff and Black Rose Society.
