Thursday Evening Complete Beginners 7.00pm- 8.00pm

Beginners Advice - click this link to access pages with lots of information by need before you play a note!

This is a zoom class.  Please e mail Jill jillyelliot@gmail.com for the zoom link - it is the same each week for any class or session - please arrive in the waiting room  5-10 minutes early.  As you progress there are several other groups and sessions for you plus the opportunity to play in the Highly Strung Community Band when we can meet again.

This is an introduction to playing fiddle or violin (the same fingering is used for mandolin and tenor banjo - 4 string banjo tuned GDAE - so could be of interest to those starting with these instruments.)

Absolute beginners will be taken through everything needed to get you off to a flying start, answering all your questions in a special personal or group zoom meeting - and then we will be working on the tunes on the beginners learning resource page.

Contact Jill to arrange your free introductory zoom session at a mutually convenient time so you can go through the website together to find out how to use the audio and visual aids.  jillyelliot@gmail.com or ring 07515 904 707 

We are currently operating via Zoom and will do so until at least the end of March 2021
