that was an awesome start to the term. I hope to see you all this week and we can continue building arrangements for our tunes.
Interesting Fact of the week: If you are having a hard time tuning or hitting a note, stop and listen. Your home may be pulling you out of tune. This week I discovered that both my Dryer & the bathroom fans in my house hum somewhere between Bb and B when they are running. Which is why after 10 tries I still couldn't sing Oh Susanna in tune. I was pulling my hair out, I thought I was going crazy. I spent hours going over it again and again trying to figure it out. Turns out it wasn't all my fault, it was just second hand music.
Resources for this week.

May 25th weekend: Due to NIFPA cancelling its fiddle program this year I have hired Miriam Sonstenes & Jeff Dill from Victoria to put on our own mini festival May 25/26th 2019. This will consist of workshops for folkharmonic and solo masterclasses in both classical and fiddle genres. I will have more information on this at the first class of 2019.
If you have any questions or concerns please let me know (email is best, although I may not reply right away as I will be out of wifi/cell range while at Mount Cain)
All the best,
