Rebecca is an experienced and engaging teacher, offering individual lessons and group workshops with an emphasis on building skills to connect with others through music and have fun.  Since March 2020, she has taught a weekly drop-in common contra tunes workshop and jam on Zoom.  She was the featured New England and Scandinavian teacher at the Upper Potomac Fiddle Retreat in Shepherdstown, West Virginia in January 2020.  With Steve Hickman, she co-led the Glen Echo Open Band – a dance band open to everyone that often numbers 30+ enthusiastic musicians.

Current teaching:

Thursdays - Virtual Contra Dance Tunes Workshop & Jam

Drop in to have fun learning common contra dance tunes over Zoom and more easily and comfortably connect with other people through music.  Tune melodies taught slowly, then discussion of harmony and ornaments.  Some discussion of chords; primarily focused on strategies for melody instruments.  Jump in with your local Open Band or jam once physical distancing is over!

**The last Thursday of the month is a relaxed-pace jam where we play past tunes!**
