The Jink & Diddle School of Scottish Fiddling

Traditional Scottish Fiddle Music

38th Annual Scottish Fiddling School
Online via Zoom Video Conferencing
Come join us for online evening classes and events with your favourite instructors during the previously scheduled time for Weeks 1 & 2 2021!  We hoped the 2020 Online Summer Jink would be a one-off - but it was not to be.  However, we know you don't want to miss the fun or all your friends, so let's make the most of the opportunity for another virtual event!  Returning by popular demand will be a Fiddling for Classical Players series in the Focus Classes group.  The class debuted to great acclaim last year!  Let all your violinist acquaintances know about this gem!  And see the schedule below ...

  • $200 for the full two week package
  • $150 for one week (both Mondays are open to all registered participants)
  • $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 (our classrooms when more than one class is offered simultaneously).
  • Zoom currently states the prerequisite versions of the Zoom desktop client or web client to be:
    • Windows - 3.5.31087.1102 or higher
    • macOS - 3.5.31087.1102 or higher
    • Linux - 2.0.81497.1116 or higher
    • Chrome - 2.4.943.510 or higher
  • Note that Zoom documentation no longer states that users logging in on Chromebook/Chrome OS will not be able to enter the breakout rooms.
  • The documentation, however, does still state that breakout rooms will not be recorded to the cloud - so no one should count on being able to come along later to replay any class.
  • See Online Jink FAQs for more information.
