Flexible Fiddling

Do you want happy and engaged students?

Flexible Fiddling is a kid-tested program that takes the guesswork away.  Everything is spelled out and kid-tested. Your students will love it.

Orchestra students learn how to play fiddle tunes authentically. Yet they won’t just learn the tunes.

They create bass lines, accompaniments, and play the melody. They tell their friends that orchestra is cool, making your job of recruitment and retention easier. They reach out to younger students and show them how to play the cool music they learned in orchestra.

And they have fun!

I liked how it was very upbeat. I liked the mixture of instruments. It sounded really cool.
