Practice Variations

  • Respond with plucking instead of bowing
  • Respond with singing instead of fiddling
  • Respond with Audiation (“hearing it in your head”) instead of fiddling
  • On your own, alternate between singing and fiddling small tune phrases
  • On your own, alternate between playing something in the low and high octave
  • Record your own call-and-response exercises

The more you practice this way, the more the fiddle will become an extension of your body and your voice.
