Now in its tenth year, fiddlekids is a unique, fun-filled summer day camp for children, devoted to traditional fiddle music. At fiddlekids, Appalachian, Celtic, bluegrass and other fiddle styles are explored through tunes, songs, dance and art. fiddlekids welcomes violin students ages 7-13. We request that applicants have played violin a minimum of one year prior to camp. Children learn in small groups, with an emphasis on ear training. They will be introduced to theory, basic composition, harmony and improvisation in a fun and practical manner. Your children will learn from each of our experienced instructors. In addition, art and dance classes are offered in small age-based groups. These classes serve to provide enrichment and thematic connections with the music.
