I will help you develop a solid technique for many years of comfortable fiddle playing!

I use Brian Wicklund's American Fiddle Method series.

If you are interested in reading music, I am happy to support your learning; if you prefer to learn by ear, that also works just fine.

Want to learn bluegrass, old-time, or Irish fiddling? With 18 years playing fiddle and 10 years teaching, I have the experience to help a beginner gain basic skills or an advanced student analyze bowing patterns, moving double stops, and more. From the student who is picking up the fiddle for the first time to the fiddler who’s been playing their whole life, I hope to inspire a love for traditional fiddle music and culture.

About Cody

I was first inspired to play the fiddle by my grandfather, Tom Smith. Many of my cousins started learning traditional instruments around the same time and we had a lot of fun jamming at family gatherings and at music festivals in our home state of Indiana. In 2015 I was proud to carry the family tra

I learned a lot of basics in my very first lesson ever, and am excited to continue to learn with Cody. He's confident, calm and friendly and gave me more information than I thought I'd get in one quick lesson. I look forward to next week!
Cynthia
I have taken lessons with Cody for about 6 months and he has taken me from knowing absolutely nothing about how to play a string instrument to feeling capable of playing a few tunes and excited to play in a jam once things open up again. I especially appreciate that he introduced me to the music of female old time fiddlers like Brittany Haas and Tatiana Hargreaves, and helped me to better see myself in a musical space often saturated by men.
Liam
Here are the pros: Cody is a very nice gentleman. He’s an experienced player and great teacher, very patient, respectful, with a good demeanor, and is easy to talk to about practical stuff so that I can play or jam with others more quickly. I study with him once a week for 75 minutes online from NJ. He answers my questions, helps me with technique, and then we work on a song that I want to learn such as our current song is Buck Owens country song Truck Driving Man —he’ll show me how he would improvise and do the back up— putting in classic authentic bluegrass/country sounding fiddle double stops, slides, hammer on licks. I am having a blast learning new stuff and feel I am quickly progressing — I am confident you’d enjoy his teachings too. But you don’t have to take my word for it, instead just listen to his playing on YouTube- it speaks for itself. I wanna play like him.

Here are the cons: even at 75 minutes a week the time just flies by too fast, I don’t want the fun to stop. I look forward to my lesson every week.

I've played guitar since I was only eight years old (over 20 years!) in many different bands, styles, and genres. I played in a traditional Irish ensemble when I was in college and have since picked up banjo, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica, and bodhran (Irish hand drum). I've also helped teach group violin classes in music programs in Orlando, FL and NYC. I love playing and teaching bluegrass music, it's a special challenge both for me and the students!

About Gio

I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums. I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is wha

I have taught music for over 10 years and believe students should get to play what they want to play! Students are asked to come up with a list of songs and/or artists they would love to play. Through teaching chords, note reading and theory, the song possibilities are endless! I also can help the aspiring singer/mandolin player to be able to both play and sing simultaneously.

Best instructor ever. Very patient. Knows how to handle an old guy like me. My playing doesn't really deserve someone as good, but I'm thankful to have her.

We love Rachel!!! She is patient and kind. She carefully explains what my daughter can do to improve her technique and tone. She is intentional in her instruction, making sure the basics are solid. She is an excellent bass instructor. Thanks Rachel!

Alani has a patient way of teaching teenagers how to fiddle by making it fun. She sends us recordings of the song so my daughter can work on the piece during the week and we appreciate it! I highly recommend this artist! We are having so much fun!"

What's the Difference Between the Violin and Fiddle?

Is that a fiddle... or a violin? It's a common question, and one that baffles many beginner musicians. So what's the answer? When it comes to the actual instrument, there actually aren't any differences. What distinguishes a violin from a fiddle is what kind of music you're playing with it. A musician playing folk, bluegrass or country, for example, would most likely refer to their instrument as a fiddle; those who play other genres (jazz, classical, etc.) typically call theirs a violin. …
