Introduction to Fiddle and Folk Music is primarily for younger students, and violinists, violists and cellists of any age who have limited experience. Participants must be able to play a one-octave D scale and read notes within the staff. Sessions will be 10-11 a.m. June 20 and 27 and July 11, 18, and 25 at the Studio of Sue Jesch, 357 Fairview Drive, across from Lowe’s, above Dog-Eared Books.
