Place des Arts Welcomes Rosie Carver


Place des Arts is pleased to welcome violin instructor and fiddler Rosie Carver to the music faculty in January, 2010. Rosie will lead a brand new fiddling class, PdA Fiddlers, for young violin students wishing to gain more performance experience and expand their technical skills.

A fixture in the local music scene, Rosie has performed and recorded with the Celtic group Blackthorn for over 20 years. She is trained as a classical violinist, is an Associate of the Royal Conservatory of Music and is a member of the BC Registered Music Teachers’ Association. She is the associate director of the Vancouver Corelli Strings and founder and director of the West Coast Fiddle Heads.

Rosie believes that with proper training and musical awareness a student can venture into whichever style he or she chooses. Her class, PdA Fiddlers, will offer a fun introduction to the basics of Celtic music for intermediate level violinists aged 10-15 years. Students will develop a repertoire of simple jigs, reels and airs and perform them each term.

PdA Fiddlers is just one of the new classes at Place des Arts beginning in January of 2010. Other offerings include Group Guitar, Group Violin, Singing Fundamentals for Adults, String Quartet Junior and classes for homelearners.
