DAN LEVENSON (www.clawdan.com)
Dan Levenson is a modern day troubadour in the truest sense of the word. A full time musician, Dan travels the country with banjo and fiddle singing songs and telling stories of the road, his musical journey and his Southern Appalachian roots. Dan is native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He and his wife The Lovely Miss Jennifer now make their home in Yuma, Arizona.

About the workshops:
The workshops are for mixed levels from beginners and beyond who are already basically playing their instrument and are interested in playing better. Students should be able to tune their instrument and come in tuned to a reliable tuner (we will fine tune together). You should also be able to play through at least a few common tunes without stopping.

We will start with a review of the basics as I play  hand and instrument positions, tone, intonation and rhythm  then proceed via learning one or two new tunes (as many as time allows).

Through listening to the playing (demonstration) of those tunes (both live from the instructor, and historic recordings), we will learn how to discern a basic melody, basic rhythm and on to some ornamentation of the tune. We will drill the tune in with the goal being to play along with guitar accompaniment.

The tune per se, will not be the goal in and of itself rather the improvement of your fiddle/clawhammer skills as well as the ability to begin learning tunes by ear. Some written music may be used for illustration purposes.

Clawhammer workshop will include Double and Drop thumb techniques.

Fiddle workshop will including making bowing decisions and some work in cross tuning.

Both workshops will also include some focus on learning a tune by ear and making it your own.
