You'll get the new tunes a little later in the month! I think I'll add them to Christmas Day and Boxing Day!
Someone commented on my YouTube channel that I'd got the name wrong on a tune and of course they were totally correct! I was so happy to have this correction done because now I know far more about The Flitter Dance than I did before I love the tune even more! So go and take a look!
What's new this week?
For flute this week we have two videos! We've reached J and Jacob Hall's Jig. Because we're now in December I'm pausing the A-Z of dance tunes and will be doing some Christmas tunes instead. This week we have Holly and the Ivy as a flute duet. You can play along.
I'm currently out on the road doing some fun things, some Christmas some not, but more about those next time! :)) Vicki

Hello! In the middle of learning christmas words for our December tour I've grabbed the camera out this week. It's going to take a little while to do all the editing - but there might be a bit of Christmas in there!
I decided to deconstruct Hamburska efter Pehr Ericsson and talk about different ways of writing out the tune. If this is useful I will do exactly the same thing for other tunes with cool and funky rhythms. Just let me know!
For Säckpipa this week I created a simple beginners tune for playing in D on the E/A chanter. It's not something we do much, but it is possible! It's a nice simple tune: Shepherds Hey. On the Scottish Smallpipes I've done Hie Mee Stiagh, it goes very nicely! We're on I for the A-Z of flute tunes and a great little tune called Impertinence.
We're on H for the A-Z of flute tunes and Hyde Park.
I've also made an updated video for setting up the sound on Zoom for Zoom music lessons. There wasn't much change under the bonnet - but original sound is now called Original Sound for Musicians, so I thought it was worth re-filming to include this! Enjoy :)) Vicki

Hello! We're finally home from the epicness that was Dracula Returns up at Whitby Abbey. I shared a selection of photographs from the event into our stories on instagram and then saved them into a collection so by clicking on this link you should be able to see them! It was an incredible experience!
Hello! This week has been mad preparations to get prepared for 10 days up at Whitby working on the Illuminated Abbey. Jonny has been writing a score for a re-imagining of Dracula, it should be fun! Because we don't know how much internet access we'll have for the next ten days I've made sure that everything I have edited has been uploaded and is ready to put on the site!
So what is new this week? We have Orange and Blue on the nyckelharpa. Make sure you watch the trio video! We also have Goddesses played on the mini-nyckelharpa.
Hello! I'm back from the three different workshop weekends and have had a couple of days to do some filming! So finally I'm catching up with lessons that needed to be caught up with! It's been a wonderful few weeks with all the workshops! All just as amazing as each other!
Hello! It feels like all the nyckelharpa workshops have been piled into a small period of time, so this week I am in Germany teaching at Burg Fürsteneck. This is going to give me a lot of videos to make over the next few weeks. The image below is from my teaching room in the castle! So what's new this week?
Hola! This week was teaching in Portugal and it was a lot of fun! A real flying visit though as it was sandwiched in-between other events! Hopefully it will be the start of many visits! Because I've been on the road I've not managed to get the camera out to film the lessons from Halsway. This is in the schedule for tomorrow as I prepare for Burg Fürsteneck!
