This course is for the beginner fiddler. It begins with a series of six free lessons which teach how to hold the instrument, proper posture, bowing technique and two easy tunes. Good basic technique is addressed throughout the tutorials. OAIM’s unique, animated fiddle graphics supports the student and helps one to learn more efficiently.
In the subsequent twelve lessons, there is a progressive study of fingering, bowing, tunes and ornamentation. Emphasis is placed on tempo, rhythm and tone when teaching the tunes. The 'Fiddle Basics' course will equip the beginner fiddle player with fourteen great tunes as well as all the necessary rudiments to start the journey down the long and adventurous road of Irish fiddle playing.
We are convinced that learning the fiddle with these innovative lessons couldn't be made easier!
