Take a fiddle masterclass online with musician and composer Zoë Conway



To mark World Fiddle Day 2020, our partners at Music Generation Tipperary commissioned renowned musician Zoë Conway to develop and record a special video masterclass for young fiddlers rehearsing and learning at home.

Originally broadcast by Music Generation Tipperary on 16 May we are now delighted to be able to make the video available to children and young people across Ireland. 

The masterclass includes Zoë's expert advice on how to achieve great sound on your fiddle, practice tips and tricks and a series of tunes to try out: The Wren's Nest, The Four Poster Bed and The Badger's Fart. 

Notation for each of the tunes can be found below. 

The masterclass will be available for young musicians to view until the end of August - plenty of time to get practicing over the summer months!

Our thanks to Zoë and to Music Generation Tipperary for sharing this invaluable new resource and for giving us more ways to #KeepMakingMusic from home.
