The 6th year of RI Fiddle Project started with great energy! Students arrived with instruments in hand, ready to play, with good form, and smiles on their faces. Old tunes were reviewed, and Amazing Grace was the new tune of the day. It's cool to see how much our students have grown up over the summer. They were quick to help each other learn, and were really focused on getting good tone. I am so glad that we are continuing this year.
I had a nice surprise last Sunday. Magnolia (my Cajun band) was playing at the Pawtucket Arts Festival at Slater Park, and suddenly I see Heiner, one of our students, with his sister and Mom. He jumped and joined the band for a tune. What a treat!
