MONDAY - FRIDAY FIDDLERS' DAILY SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES*
*NOTE: Folk Orchestra has parts for players of all skill levels. All RFC-ers are encouraged to participate in some way, even the beginners. Dan Levenson will organizes the lesson activities and schedule of his students, including his beginning fiddle and banjo students, and will communicate directly with them.
Last year's schedule of classes is shown below. The schedule changes every year because we tailor the schedule to our students, their interests, and skill levels. This is one of the great advantages of having a small camp. The schedule will be finalized closer to the start of camp after most of the registration is complete, but last year's schedule will give you a rough idea of the pacing of our camp days.
