2018 Workshops

Get Your Groove On

Have you always wanted to play cool rhythmic back-up to tunes, wondered what people were talking about when they say “it’s all 1 4 5”, wanted to know what chords to play behind a tune or how to create a harmony? Well you’re not alone. In fact, so many people told us they wanted to get better at these things, World Fiddle Day Toronto is offering a series of 5 workshops for Intermediate players of all ages, led by Lea Kirstein (March 18, April 29) and Anne Lederman (April 5, 15).
