Festival of American Fiddle Tunes – Tutors


Tutorial sessions are held each afternoon after the band labs. These classes are universally small, ensuring individual attention, and are open to all. Beginning level tutorials will focus on technique; intermediate level tutorials will focus on style. In many cases, the intermediate tutorials will be in the musical styles presented by the faculty.  You will also find tutors leading jam sessions with a spirit of graceful encouragement, playing for dances, and generally being a welcoming and helpful presence throughout the week.

We are currently assembling the 2015 Festival.
