Lesson 1 – Basic Tuning

I recommend downloading a free tuning app on smartphone (I used and app called insTuner) and using an electronic tuner. I demonstrated how to use the fine tuners to adjust the pitch a little amount (righty tighty, lefty loosey). I also demonstrated how to use the pegs to tune. *While using the pegs be sure to loosen the string slightly before twisting and pushing into the peg box to raise the pitch.

“Annie and her band did a fabulous job of engaging students from all ages of our string feeder area ­elementary through high school. The students and audience members loved the band’s performance and the high energy they brought to our concert! The students had so much fun learning new songs by rote and the pieces were well-arranged for a variety of levels of playing.”
