Old-Time Fiddling for Beginners

An eight-week, old-time fiddling class for beginners ages 12 to adult is being offered by Stringtime Music Workshops at ARTS/West, 132 West State Street, Athens.

Classes meet on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to noon, beginning January 19 and ending March 9.

Starting from scratch, students will learn eight simple old-time fiddle tunes by ear, and develop the skills and confidence needed to learn tunes on their own.

The class fee is $130 and includes a practice CD and handouts. Bill Mullins, a second place winner in the 2012 Ohio State Fiddling Contest, will lead the class.

If you like old-time fiddling and want to learn in an extremely low stress environment, dust off that fiddle and sign up now!
