Fiddle Video Lessons
Fiddle Pal Camps
Because many (but not all) students are either members of American Fiddle Method Online School or have the AFM books, the staff choose tunes to learn at camp that are not in the AFM program. In the jam sessions, however, most of the tunes are from AFM. These tunes are great fun to learn and are commonly known by the campers. Being a member of AFM Online School gives campers a head start in learning repertoire, fiddle styles and learning by ear.
Yes. When camp begins, the sheet music will be posted online. Students who want copies can print them off at home. Generally the teachers prefer not to use sheet music in class. However, if you really feel like you need it, we can print off copies for your reference. We can also print off copies for students who don’t have access to a printer during camp.
If you choose to bring a smart phone or iPad to camp, we ask that they be used only to record and for necessary logistical communication with family. There are too many great campers and experiences to miss by playing video games or watching cat videos!
Your health is important to us! Our kitchen environment is not completely free of gluten or nuts. However, our snacks have a no gluten option. Campers with severe allergies should bring their own food and medical supplies and notify Marty Button about what they need to have a safe environment.
