What are we up to?
We are thrilled to be bringing early childhood music education classes to Origins! Beginning in February, both Tiny Fiddlers and Young Fiddlers group music classes will be offered at Origins Preschool on Thursday mornings. More info on our classes page! And click the logo above to learn about this wonderful school!
This is Róisín. Ró is seven years old and has been playing fiddle for a little over a year. She's got a huge heart, a deep love for music, and approaches both her fiddle and the tunes with grace, curiosity, and poise.
Some things she'd like you to know: 1) She loves to spend a couple months in Ireland each summer where she knows three cats - Tigger, Isabelle, and Little Tom Joe. 2) She likes math. 3) Her favorite fiddle tune she knows is "Shortnin' Bread" and she wants to learn ""Sourwood Mountain" next. 4) Her mom makes a mean Irish Whiskey cake (ok, I wanted you to know that).
One of my favorite things to do in class with Ró is to sing through all our tunes before we play them - she's got a strong and beautiful voice!
We'll have fiddles, bassoon, cello ensembles, and maybe even a ukulele! Come stop in between 1-2pm tomorrow at Lowell School, bring your holiday shopping list, and have a listen!
