Tim Chaissonis creating Fiddle Tune Video Tutorials + LIVE Hang Oots.
Select a membership level
- Bi-Weekly Fiddle Tune Video Tutorials (focussing on learning melody by ear, bowing techniques, embellishments, etc).
- Mini Guitar Accompaniment Lesson
- Access to Sheet Music + Tutorial Notes For Every Tune
- Monthly Tuning Room Session (virtual kitchen party vibes)! This is a Live Chat + Jam! Happening the 1st Saturday of every month via Zoom (7pm AST), we'll get our fiddles or geetars out and have some tunes together (we'll start off slow and eventually pick er up). I'll have a special guest accompanying me (and you) - bevy of choice in hand ;)
So... If you don't know me, I'm a full time touring musician + songwriter (The East Pointers) from Prince Edward Island, Canada. The East Coast is so rich in trad + folk music (I'd recommend some googling if you don't know much about our area ;)) and I'm hoping to share a bit of that with you!
I get asked quite often about fiddle workshops and it’s quite rare I actually get a chance to do ‘em anymore (first it was because we were always touring, now it’s for other reasons ;))! So on here (Tuning Room Members), I'll be posting BI-WEEKLY video tutorials (*sometimes they come weekly, just building the library!) focussing on tunes from home + East Pointers tunes (learning melody by ear, bowing, embellishments, etc). They fall somewhere in the intermediate category (some are between beginner and intermediate), although I'm hoping all levels with take something away! If you’re not confident with your ear, don’t fret! I’ll have accompanying sheet music + tutorial notes breaking down the tune visually.
After each tutorial, I’ll have a mini guitar accompaniment lesson - focussing on that tune (strumming patterns, chord structure, etc).
ALSO, I’ll be going LIVE once per month for the Tuning Room Sessions! On the 1st Saturday of every month (via Zoom) at 7pm AST, we’ll get our fiddles (or geetars) out and have some tunes together! JAM (virtual kitchen party vibes). We’ll start er off slow then pick er up AND I’ll have a special guest accompany me (and you)! A little chit-chat and bevy of choice never hurt anyone either ;)I've also just opened a new Tier, Tuning Room PRO (limited space), offering Bi-Weekly Private (Online) Lessons! This is where we'll be focussing on YOUR needs (fiddle or guitar). Let's DIG IN!
I'm looking forward to a little online fiddle tune community (virtual Rollo Bay?) and seeing where it all goes!
Yer the best.
