2018-19 West Coast Fiddle Summit

West Coast Youth Fiddle Summit Info:

Way to go Fiddlers!

Congratulations to all our back row fiddlers for their hard work and progress as they prepared for the West Coast Youth Fiddle Summit! I have seen so much musical development happen since we embarked on the tunes in January. I am very proud of how far they have come, and thrilled our fiddlers  will have the opportunity to perform these tunes with some of the finest fiddle ensembles in Canada. 

See you in Nanaimo!  -Keitha

 Learning Goals week of Feb. 4-8

  • Polish any of tricky spots in the arrangements (start slow and gradually increase the speed) 
  • Double check bowing, did you forget a slur or add an extra one in?
  • Remember to feel the groove and play as a group
  • Take a deep breath before you start to play each piece and  notice your breathing as you perform.

 

Notes from Previous Weeks:

 Mountain Canary: 

Volcanic Jig-Can you play sections B,C,D, up to speed? (If not- focus on one section a day, start slow and gradually increase the speed)

 Flying Squirrel- Can you play the B part / melody in the new key up to speed? (If not focus on one section a day, start slow, and gradually increase the speed)
