Pete teaching on Zoom


A new ‘dual’ 10-week course...
Scottish Fiddle Tunes
with Pete Cooper

In-person classes will be at
Cecil Sharp House
2 Regent’s Park Road,
London NW1 7AY
Wednesdays 7.30 - 9.00pm 
from 17 January (half-term break 14 February) to 27 March

Zoom classes will take place on 
Thursdays 7.30 - 9.00pm 
from 18 January (half-term break 15 February) to 28 March

Pete will teach in person on Wednesday evenings at Cecil Sharp House, then on Thursday evenings give the same class from home on Zoom. You can join him for either session... 
... or even, at no extra charge, both! 

Pete continues his exploration of Scottish fiddle traditions, discovering more beautiful strathspeys, reels, pipe marches, jigs and laments. Teaching different repertoire from previous courses, he will also share his insights into regional styles, including those of the West Highlands, North-East, Shetland and the Borders. 

As usual, you will receive an audio recording, or a YouTube link, a day or two before the class to help familiarise you with the tune of the week. Pete will teach it by ear, phrase by phrase, both fingering and bowing, at the class, and send you the notation and a video afterwards. He will lead gentle, yoga-based warm-ups at the start of each session.

'Pete’s teaching seems to somehow highspeed and hardwire the music into the brain’ 
- Sheila Hill, The Guardian
‘Pete Cooper - not bad for an Englishman’
- Bruce MacGregor (Blazing Fiddles)

Cost £125.00 (concessions £100.00)
