Overview

Level: Intermediate to Advanced

This workshop from award-winning Irish fiddle player, Manus McGuire, aims to improve the player wishing to play more in an Irish style. Listening to solo playing is paramount in this exercise and common tunes will be dissected and examined closely. For advanced players, the class focuses on the possibilities for variation and improvisation that exist within the tradition as a means to personal expression and interpretation. There is particular emphasis on bowing, rhythm, and ornamentation. The existing style of the individual is explored and encouraged with emphasis and feedback given to adopting fresh approaches.
