River City String Club andis for string players ages 6 - 18 who want to play music and have fun! We'll learn new fiddle tunes, movie music, pop tunes, and whatever we want! Alternative styles include learning how to create back up parts, chopping, and percussive techniques.
Interested in String Club for Adults? As soon as we get enough people interested in this we can get it started. Rally your string player friends! This group would learn independently through recorded video tutorials and then meet up to play the tunes. Please email Ingrid at firstname.lastname@example.org and help make this happen!
