Fiddles in the Forest is a new music camp for young string players. It combines top-flight strings instruction with singing, dancing, nature hikes, and some very special hands-on crafts. Students learn fiddle tunes by ear on violin, viola, cello and bass, along with body percussion, harmony singing and fun, easy folk dances. Great melodies are taught along with rhythmic and harmonic accompaniment, and more advanced students get to explore multilevel ensemble arrangements with parts available for guitar, piano and other instruments. Team building and community are an underlying theme at Fiddles In the Forest as students work and play together in the inspiring beauty of the natural world.
