Child playing the fiddle

The Blair Academy fiddling program offers a holistic approach in teaching children to play, using the Suzuki philosophy to build solid technique and tone, mixed with the "Fiddle and Song" curriculum created by Crystal Wiegman. Students learn traditional fiddle music in a program that incorporates ear training, singing, harmonies, improvisation and arranging.

Introductory classical and historical folk styles, including old-time, bluegrass, Irish, Scottish, Texas swing and other world styles, are taught. Beginning students have 30-minute weekly private lessons and small group experience. Program recitals are also held at the end of each semester.

This high-demand program is directed by Crystal Plohman Wiegman. Contact her to inquire about openings at 615-343-6360 or via email.
