New Classes This Fall

Fiddling Classes
The Knight Music Academy is pleased to offer a fiddling class on Saturdays this Fall. This class will introduce students in Suzuki Book 2 and above (or equivalent) to American folk, bluegrass, and Irish fiddling. We will explore bowing styles, rhythms, and ensemble playing that make this style so unique. Open to violin, viola, and cello. Please speak with instructor if lower than book 2 and interested. Students should purchase a copy of Fiddle and Song Book 1 before the start of class.
