**Iconic Bowing Elements will be offered as a 6-week online course using the platform Zoom. Instructions for using Zoom will be sent upon registration**
This class explores southern mountain old-time fiddle tunes with a focus on understanding the bowing elements that make them unique and also universal. We’ll work through tunes by ear, and we’ll identify the elements that bring shape, melodic rhythm, and style to the music. As the class progresses, recognizing these elements will give us a deeper awareness of phrasing and context. Plus we’ll add some great tunes to our tune lists! We will start with easier tunes and build up to more challenging repertoire. We’ll start out in standard tuning, and depending on interest, may add some cross-tuned tunes.
Class level: Intermediate or beyond is ideal. If you feel you are nearly at an intermediate level, you will get a lot out of this class too.
