Please join us for the seventh Youth Jam Session at Bath Dance Works in downtown Bath. This session was created by music teachers to give young musician an opportunity to play tunes with each other and learn by ear. It is for all levels. We will start with simple tunes and proceed to the more advanced. The emphasis will be on fiddle tunes in keys of D, G, A,Em and Am … Instruments other than fiddle are welcome!!
Thanks to everyone who came to the first five jams. They were a great success. We had a few fiddlers, a banjo player, ukulele, tin whistle and guitar. Hopefully everyone will begin to memorize tunes from the list each month. The best way to prepare for the jam is to listen to the tunes ahead of time until they are in your head….and then practice with or without the sheetmusic. Audio clips and sheet music are available on Maine Fiddle Camp website. We will play from both lists below. The easier tunes are the ones in purple below. If you are just joining us pick one or two tunes to practice before Friday/ Please feel free to pick a tune or two from the list that you would like to play. I will try to bring the sheet music but we only have a few music stands.
Please spread the word to other musicians.
Warmly, Sharon Pyne
