• Dan MacDonald's "Irish Fiddle classes": Wednesday evenings in Guelph at 44 Greenwich Drive. Starts Wed. Sept. 27th.
 
Message from Dan:   I hope we've all had a great summer!  Just gearing up now to begin fall classes in Guelph.  The location has changed.  Maureen Harron has generously offered her house and I really appreciate it.  Her house is at 44 Greenwich Drive and classes will begin on Wednesday Sept 27 and run for 12 weeks, the last class being Dec 13. (Final Wrap Up is Sunday Dec. 3rd).  The "Tunes and Techniques" class will be at 7 p.m. and the "Advanced Irish Fiddle" class is at 8:30 pm. The cost for the 12 week set of classes is $300 and for the people who have classes left over from last term, the cost will be $240. Please drop me a line if you're interested in joining. Can't wait to get started!!

Tunes and Techniques 
7 pm  This class is designed for beginners and people who have been playing for a little while. In "Tunes and Techniques" we strengthen fundamental skills on the instrument - intonation, sound production and rhythm - through the use of exercises and new repertoire. Students will emerge from this class stronger all around players.
 
Advanced Irish Fiddle 8:30 pm This class is designed for people who already play some tunes but would like to expand their repertoire and focuses on the finer points of ornamentation, bowing and rhythm particular to the Irish sound. Students will emerge from this class with a more extensive repertoire, including tunes commonly used in sessions throughout the world.
