Join the fantastic Joe hibbs for Fiddle 0. Suitable for complete beginners and those who have just started learning.

Joe Hibbs is a fiddler from the north-east of Scotland, originally from Johnshaven but now teaching, playing and living in Aberdeen. Although being classically trained at the University of Aberdeen, Joe has always had a passion for Scottish traditional music and now teaches violin, viola and Scot’s fiddle in local schools.

The Fiddle 0 class is aimed at complete beginners who have never held a fiddle before. If you’ve never read a note of music either, then this class is for you as we’ll primarily be learning by ear. The basic instrument and bow hold will be covered, and you will develop a sense of musicality as you learn to play in a group. If you’ve done a small amount of violin then this class will be useful for consolidating any technique that you may have learned before too. The most important aim of the Fiddle 0 class is to have fun in a supportive environment - and hopefully be the end of the ten weeks, you’ll have a tune or two under your fingers!

Hire of fiddles is available - please get in touch.

SC&T are using an online platform called Thinkific to support all our classes this term. Thinkific is an online platform where participants can find all supporting lesson material, recordings and music in one place and sign up for the weekly classes.

Price for the term is: £94.50 - this can be paid in one lump sum when you sign up, or in 3 monthly instalments - you can choose your preference when you sign up.
