We are bringing Blazin' in Beauly online!
There are two parts to Beauly this year - Live lessons, and Video Bundles.
Each video bundle features professionally recorded twin camera videos, going through a variety of tunes, with closeups on the fingerboard so you can see exactly what we do! AND you can pause and rewind us - what could be better?!
For the live sessions, we'll be starting the day off with the ever popular Early Bird Class - a gentle session to start the day, led by Jenna Reid from 8am.
We will be running 'live' classes every day from 7pm BST, through Zoom,We'll be starting these classes off with 'the Big Tune', where we'll be working on an exciting new arrangement we want you all to be part of (music provided), before splitting off into our classes.
There are three levels of class:
Slow - For those who can play a few tunes through at a relaxed pace. Should be reasonably comfortable playing in A major, D major and G major.
Intermediate - For those able to play reasonable number of tunes at a steady pace, with some simple bowing and ornamentation. Should be reasonably comfortable playing in A major, D Major, G Major, A minor, B minor and E minor.
Advanced - For those comfortable playing a range of tunes at a good pace, with reasonably fluid bowing and ornamentation. You should have a reasonable knowledge of the various Scottish tune types, and be fairly competent in most common Key signatures.
Rua is also running a fiddle clinic on the Wednesday, where you can ask him literally anything about the fiddle! Whether its bowing, grace notes, or a tricky bit in a tune you 're learning, Rua will be happy to offer advice and tips.
On Friday, We'll be premiering our Big Tune, followed by a session, some drams and good bit of craic!
Although the tuition will be Fiddle based, other instruments are welcome to join us!
