Harmony Music House’s Front Range Fiddle Camp July 17-21 2017 (Mon-Fri 10am to 2pm)
Come be a part of the first ever Front Range Fiddle Camp at Harmony Music House. Join veteran teacher and performer Enion Pelta-Tiller for 5 days of jamming and learning tunes! Fiddlers and cellists ages 8-14 will learn Celtic, Bluegrass, and Old-time tunes and back-up parts with other campers at their playing level, as well as joining in the all-camp review and jam with players of diverse levels at the end of each day. On the final day of camp, campers will perform the music they’ve learned for friends and parents! Each day will include a one hour lunch and play-time break at nearby North Boulder Park, so please send your child with a sack lunch and sunscreen.
Students should have a minimum of two years of playing experience or should have completed Suzuki Book 1. Campers will be separated into two level groups for the first 90 minutes of the day, and all campers will come together to work on the camp song and jam together after lunch.
Camp enrollment fee $275

I've been playing the violin since I was in kindergarten, and I've been playing fiddle tunes since I was about eight. What I really love about fiddle is how catchy the tunes are. What I've learned is as you grow older and more advanced, you can always come back to fiddle songs you learned years ago and riff on them in new ways. I've always loved playing the violin and helping kids out on improving their playing. I babysit regularly, and I occasionally volunteer at a preschool in Boulder and I am Red Cross certified. I'm excited to play some tunes!
