About Tune Writing 101 – Little Runner:
In this lesson, Andy dissects fiddle tunes to find out what makes them tick, explores different compositional strategies, discusses how to use melodic development to turn a small phrase into a coherent fiddle tune, and explains how to open yourself up to receive those magic bits of inspiration. Each group collaborated on writing a new tune together and those who attend leave with a new skill set and inspiration for writing new tunes into the future!
