Instructor(s)Caitlin Warbelow
Slots (taken)15 (15)
LocationUCPC High School Room
DescriptionStudents will learn many new Irish tunes (reels, jigs, hornpipes, airs, etc.) but the focus will be on stylistic elements such as ornamentation (rolls, triplets, cuts, harmony, etc.), bowing, musicianship, harmony, and session etiquette. Tunes will be taught by ear, but don't be worried - we will discuss how best to go about learning music by ear! Students should be able to play at an intermediate to advanced level on the fiddle/violin. Classical violinists wishing to try out Irish music are very welcome in this class even if you have no traditional music experience. Open to all ages and abilities (18+). You may also take this class if you play another melody instrument (mandolin, banjo, etc.), but please contact Caitlin first. You can reach her at
