My name is John Tercyak and I entertain with guitar, fiddle and vocals. I have over 25 years professional experience and the styles I perform range from Kids tunes to Popular, Celtic to Jazz, Holiday Favorites to Country. (Please refer to my resume)
I am offering to bring my talents to your schools for half or full day engagements where I will perform for school wide assemblies for one period (or two if necessary) a program of various fiddling types that I call; ‘Anthology of Fiddle Styles’ which includes breif introductions or descriptions of different fiddle styles and techniques and then a performance of a song or two of each. Additionally, I conduct small group seminar(s) on a variety of fiddle aspects or guitar subjects depending on your students needs or interests including some of the following but not limited to: Questions & Answers, demonstrations, group singing and playing, problem solving, handouts, harmony, transcription, interactive activities.
Each school’s program can be tailored to meet your wants, situation, age groups and level of participation.
Other Programs Suggestions:
- Finger Picking Guitar
- Celtic Fiddle
- Celtic Songs To Sing & Fiddle Tunes
- American Folk Songs And Artists
- Canadian Fiddling And It’s Roots
- Sea Shanties
- Let’s Learn Some Songs Together – for example; I will teach American Folk and Traditional Songs to individual classes or assemblies for 3 or 4 days to culminate our time together with a performance on the final day.
Other programs can be performed according to your needs, just ask. Together, we’ll select or create a program for your students.
