Learn new tunes from the comfort of your couch! If you’ve been bored out of your gourd playing your fiddle/banjo/mandolin/french horn by yourself, this is the class for you. This online class meets for 6 weeks and will introduce a new Old Time tune every week. Emily will send you a recording of the tune a few days before class to prime your ears. During class she’ll play the tune in it’s entirety then walk you through the songs phrase by phrase. You will be taught the melody by ear, (if you are a rhythm player chord changes and rhythm advice will be given as well) so some knowledge of your instrument is required.
The class is on a sliding scale between $75-$120. Any profit made from the class will be donated to Preble Street. If you wish to pay a different price or would just like to donate please choose the donate option. Please keep in mind $75 is the minimum price to attend the class (If you need a scholarship please contact me directly).
Emily Troll plays fiddle and the accordion and hails from South Portland, ME. An avid lover of French-Canadian and Old-time traditions, she’s spent many years at Pinewoods and Maine Fiddle camp honing her skills as informally as possible. You’ll often see Emily playing with her all-girl band, Anadama who just released their debut album “Way Back When.” When she’s not playing, she’s probably dancing. When she’s not dancing, she’s probably digging bittersweet out of her garden.
