2023-08-27 – Learning Nordic Fiddle Tunes by Ear



Sunday, August 27, 2023 (9:00 am-Noon, 1:00-5:00 pm)


Tyler Hendrickson


This is an in-person class held at Vesterheim Folk Art School.


Gain valuable insight into Norwegian fiddling with instructor Tyler Hendrickson. We'll focus on well-known tunes that you can use in any Scandi jam session, as well as exploring the nuances of ornamentation and double-stops for a truly traditional sound. Time permitting, we'll also introduce harmonization techniques.

The class is suitable for intermediate and advanced players and will be taught on the fiddle. But all fiddle-compatible instruments are welcome! It will also be taught by ear, so bring a recording device. Sheet music will be provided after the class.


Level of Instruction:

Intermediate and advanced musicians

Enrollment Deadline: 

 August 14, 2023
