Looking to inspire and attract students from all over the world, recognised Danish fiddler Harald Haugaard has brought together a group of the best artists and tutors from the contemporary Nordic and Anglo/Celtic music scenes. “Haugaard’s International Fiddle School was established in 2008 and since 2011 it has taken place at the Christian Jensen Kolleg in the northfrisian village Breklum.
The connection of intensive music-workshops and activities around the region of Northfrisia is an outstanding characteristic of the Fiddleschool.
The 2017 Fiddle School will be a seven-day event for playing music, singing, dancing, and making new friends. In its years the fiddle school was attended by students from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Holland, Japan, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, and the USA.
People of all ages, and from diverse cultures and countries, come together at the fiddle school to enjoy a common interest: music and the joy of music.
The Fiddle School offers an intensive daily timetable of four instrumental lessons with world-class artists and tutors. Optional activities will include master classes, workshops, dancing, a teachers’ concert, an ‘open stage’ evening and storytelling. Excursions can be made to nearby attractions such as the North Sea coast, Husum, the Danish town of Tønder, the Nolde museum etc.
The Fiddleschoolweek culminates in a Final Concert with all students on stage in Schleswig.
