The Jink & Diddle School of Scottish Fiddling

Traditional Scottish Fiddle Music

37th Annual Scottish Fiddling School
Online via Zoom Video Conferencing ~ #AloneTogether
Come join us for online evening classes and events with all your favourite instructors during Weeks 1 & 2!  It will be unique - perhaps a one-off?  You don't want to miss the fun or all your friends, so let's embrace this Novel Jink!  New this year will be a Fiddling for Classical Players series in the Focus Classes group, taught by Rachel Barton Pine.  We are very excited about it!  Let all your violinist acquaintances (who we know are just itching to start fiddling) in on the secret!

  • $50 for an additional household member using a separate email address (can attend different classes)
  • $50 each for any one or more day(s)
System Requirements:  (Check back for possible updates.)
  • We will be using Zoom breakout rooms.  Zoom documentation currently states that users logging in on Chromebook/Chrome OS will not be able to enter the breakout rooms (our classrooms when more than one class is offered simultaneously).
  • The same documentation states that breakout rooms will not be recorded to the cloud, so no one should count on being able to come along later and replay any such classes.  Individuals may record from within breakout rooms.
