All Levels; Fiddle/Violin
Just what are the differences between being a classical player and being a traditional musician? How do you switch between the two roles and why might you wish to incorporate some techniques from the “other side” into your playing? Many musicians get their start in classical training then find themselves drawn to traditional music, while some traditional players pursue classical training to develop their sight reading skills and other techniques. Explore how these two modes of approaching the fiddle (ahem, violin) overlap and differ, and how to merge the strengths of both in your playing.
