Under the Same Tent

Learn Traditional Fiddle with Fiddler Ellen Gawler. Learn Classical Chamber music with Cellist Vasily Popov and Pianist R’alitza P’atcheva.
Beginner, intermediate, advanced players are welcome. Children, teens, adults, musicians of all ages and abilities are encouraged to come learn and grow in gorgeous group classes.
Folks playing instruments that are bowed strings (cello, viola, violin/fiddle) are welcome to come learn classical and folk “under the same tent.” 
All levels welcome! Beginners will meet in one group. Intermediate and advanced will meet in another group. These will perform separately and together in the final performance. We are pleased to present two families who play music together.
Our Faculty:
Ellen Gawler is famous for Maine for keeping the traditional fiddle of Scotch-Irish, Downeast styles, Maritime styles alive and well due to her lifetime of dedicated teaching. The Pineland Fiddlers are her band of prestigious students. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree with fiddle teacher Molly Gawler, her daughter.
Cellist Vasily Popov and Pianist R’alitza P’atcheva, are fantastic and fun musicians from Levine Music in Washington, DC and they have a family chamber group with their sons, violinist Yuri Popov and cellist Vlad Popov.
