The Handmade Music School presents Rhythm and Accents for Old Time Fiddle with Emily Schaad on Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at 3:00 EST. The workshop will be presented via Crowdcast as part of our Handmade at Home online series. Cost is $1 to $100 (suggested donation of $15).

In this workshop, we will approach rhythmic old-time bowing with through one or two tunes in cross tuning in the key of A (AEAE). Focusing on one bowing pattern, which I call “syncopated shuffle,” we’ll look at a couple of ways to dress up the style in your sound. Tunes will be taught by ear with special attention to bowing rhythms/directions, although any other types of questions are welcome during the session. This workshop is geared towards intermediate and advanced players, but all are welcome.


Please consider a donation to today’s teaching artist and The Handmade Music School (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization). Thanks!
