Fiddleheads rehearse on Monday afternoons/evenings from September to December and January to May, at the La Fab Community Space (8 ch. Mill) in Chelsea, QC. All fiddlers, who range in age from 7 to 12, will play together during this time. There is a separate group for adults.
All fiddlers are required to have at least 1 year of experience playing the violin/fiddle to join the 7-12-year-old group and at least 2 years of experience to join the adult group. Fiddleheads are expected to take weekly private lessons in addition to Fiddleheads group classes.
In all our classes, we teach a variety of tunes and styles. All tunes are taught by ear, with recordings and sheet music being provided afterward for all tunes. Each year, we bring in guest artists to give special workshops and concerts for Fiddleheads students. Past guest artists include Shane Cook, Pierre Schryer, Julie & Kerry Fitzgerald, Gordon Stobbe, and Natalie MacMaster.
