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). Both Lea and Anne will be there for the final round-up, May 13 (bring your mother along!)
