At Home With
Alisa Rose
A Bluegrass Fiddle Workshop

In this hour-long class we’ll learn a classic bluegrass fiddle tune by ear. We’ll look at how the bow is used in a fiddle tune to propel the rhythm and how the left hand slides and uses double stops to make the tune sound fiddle-y! We will also look at how to back up the tune rhythmically with chords.

About the Mentor

Violinist and composer Alisa Rose is a modern musician who easily navigates between many musical styles. With roots in classical music as well as the rich American musical tradition, she attracts attention for her expressive lyrical voice on the violin. She is a member of the classical RossoRose Duo, Funk based Supermule, bluegrass explorers Scroggins & Rose.

Alisa Rose has appeared with a wide range of artists including the Real Vocal String Quartet, 2008 Rockygrass winners 49 Special, and Grammy-nominated Quartet San Francisco. Alisa performed and taught throughout Eastern Europe as an Ambassador of the State Department, and has performed at Carnegie Hall, NPR’s Weekend Edition, the historic Carter Family Fold festival, TEDx Alcatraz with Bob Weir, Song of the Mountains on PBS, as well as numerous international tours.

In recent years Alisa premiered Richard Marriott’s Concerto at Dartmouth College and premiered her own “Piano Trio for Luisa” as part of the Trinity Arts Chamber Music Festival. As a composer she utilizes American folk techniques in conjunction with classical concert forms.  This style can be heard on her album of cross-genre virtuoso works for solo violin entitled Fiddle Caprices and Pizzicato Pieces.  Other recent compositions “Nocturne for America” for RossoRose Duo, and “Six Solo Cello Suites for Wilmington,” written with Swift Rose tell stories of our time.

Alisa teaches privately as well as at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where she received her B.M. and  M.M.  in Chamber Music studying with Camilla Wicks and Bettina Mussumeli.
