Advanced Fiddle Techniques with Stewart Hardy

27th – 29th September 2019.
Rydal Hall in the Lake District
Rydal Hall, Ambleside LA22 9LX

 

Join Stewart in the beautiful surroundings of Rydal Hall in the Lake District, for a weekend of intensive Advanced Fiddle tuition. The course is fully catered, with private bedrooms and runs from 3 pm Friday until 5 pm on Sunday. This course is aimed at advanced fiddle players and will cover a range of more difficult tunes, fiddle bowings and ornaments. Tunes will be taught as if by ear, phrase by phrase, with notation available. All tuition, sheet music and mp3 files of the tunes covered and included in the price. Recordings and notation of the tunes are sent out in advance, and recordings of exercises from the course are sent on to you after the course.

The workshops typically take between 8 and 12 people for two and a half days of instruction. The cost covers all food, tuition, refreshments and overnight accommodation.The course cost for the weekend (Friday afternoon through to Sunday afternoon) includes everything by way of meals and refreshments, so no need to spend another penny on anything once you are there.

Over the weekend there are 10 * 75 minute workshops. Your tutor is available to you from breakfast until bed-time for questions and advice.

Tunes are carefully selected to work as exercises demonstrating particular techniques, whilst at the same time providing a melodic stimulus. Exercises are extracted from the tunes to facilitate applying the technique to other tunes. Many of the tunes are suitable for multi-level workshops, with the teaching of a variety of techniques, requiring greater or lesser technical experience, applied to them. Subject matter includes: bowing technique, left hand technique and general fiddle well-being. In the choice of repertoire emphasis is given to stylistic aspects of the music. A number of considerations are given to the selection of tunes, including their interest to Stewart in his studies, their interest to the general musical community, their demonstration of particular stylistic nuances, and as being representative of a composer’s style.
