With over 20 years experience teaching fiddle, I love to teach kids and adults focussing on musicality, expression and joy in performing.
I start teaching by ear so the student can focus on learning the correct technique holding the fiddle and bow and getting the most out of their instrument. I have a strong belief that good technique is important with playing the fiddle, so even though I don’t focus on classical music I do teach correct technique and posture.
I do move on to reading music and more advanced techniques in time but the MOST important thing to me is that there has to be enjoyment in playing and practicing. Without this, it’s very hard to capture a student’s imagination and have them want to practice.
