This class focuses on awareness and strength of the whole body, as well as where and how the body works against gravity to improve posture throughout daily activities. Instructor Lauren Rozas has practiced yoga for 20 years and is a licensed physical therapist.

Beginning Cajun Fiddle

Cajun fiddle is easy, if you begin at the beginning. This course assumes no prior musical knowledge of any kind, and slowly walks you through getting your fiddle and bow ready to be played, how to hold the fiddle and bow correctly, and which fingers to put on which strings. By the end of the course, students will be able to play four simplified Cajun two-steps and waltzes. All songs are taught “by ear,” so that reading music isn’t required, but written tablature diagrams will be handed out. Bringing a recording device to classes is also recommended.

Students are required to bring their own fiddle (violin), bow, and rosin. Recommended accessories include a violin shoulder rest, electronic tuning device, and a recording device (anything from a cassette recorder to a smart phone) to assist with learning “by ear.”

Time: Tuesdays • July1 – August 26 • 6:00 – 7:00 PM
Location: Classroom Community Education Building Room 117
Instructor: Mr. Henry Hample

Intermediate Cajun Fiddle

This is a solid course for students who already know a few fiddle tunes, or haven’t played in a long time and want to take it up again. Students will build a repertoire of well-known Cajun waltzes and two-steps, focusing on the underlying fiddling techniques (including scales, chords, slides, slurs, “seconding,” and “licks”) that can eventually lead to the desirable skill of improvising your way through an unfamiliar tune. All songs are taught “by ear,” so that reading music isn’t required, but written tablature diagrams will be handed out. Bringing a recording device to classes is also recommended.

Students are required to bring their own fiddle (violin), bow, and rosin. Recommended accessories include a violin shoulder rest, electronic tuning device, and a recording device (anything from a cassette recorder to a smart phone) to assist with learning “by ear.”
