Virtual Folk College 2021 Handouts After the Workshop


The handout you're looking for will be available after the workshop. In most cases, this is because the workshop will be taught by ear, and the instructor would like you to make your best attempt to learn the tunes by ear.


If you feel you simply can't learn tunes by ear, give it a try anyhow, but if it isn't working for you, you may ask to have the sheet music during the workshop. The workshop teacher, class assistant, John Kearns, and Linda Littleton all know the link, so ask any one of us. Once you have the sheet music, if you're a good sight-reader, keep in mind that you'll be learning the tune much faster than people playing by ear, so look at the music as little as possible. Try to just glance now and then.


Let us know how it goes.
