About the Weekend Classes:

fiddle classThe weekend program offers several types of classes; most of our classes are 2 hours in length and feature options for fiddle, mandolin, hammered dulcimer, and mixed-instruments.

Fiddle and dulcimer classes are at a wide variety of levels, but players should have a reasonably good command of their instruments and be able to learn repertoire from written music or by ear in order to get the most out of these classes. We are offering a "Seasoned Beginners" session for the fiddle with Joe DeZarn on Saturday this season.
