Have you been playing for a long time, or have you never picked up the instrument before? Whether you are a child or an adult, I have a style of teaching for you. I've been playing since I was a child and have a special place in my heart for the is instrument. I actually began learning from a fiddle player and trained classically later. If you want to learn how to succeed in playing this exciting and thrilling style, this is the place for you.

I have been working with Kim for a few weeks and I have learned a tremendous amount and can hear the difference every week as I progress. I enjoy the process she applies to keep it positive and fun yet learn the proper fundamentals required to perform well. I actually tried a few vocal teachers and Kim with her wisdom and experience made it simple who to go with!!

Private Fiddle Teacher

As a teacher, I am extremely upbeat and encouraging! I meet students where they are and seek to make lessons enjoyable as well as challenging. I am absolutely passionate about bluegrass and old-time music! I began playing viola in 1972 at age 9, switched to fiddle (violin) in 2003, and have been performing in bands as a bluegrass fiddler ever since! Teaching is in my blood, as I was a full-time high school English teacher for 32 years prior to my recent retirement. I've been teaching fiddle students for the past five years, and have helped many beginning and intermediate students learn how to play songs and continue building their skills. I work primarily with training by ear, but can also help students learn to read music. If you're ready to "pull out the fiddle and rosin up the bow," then give me a call!

About Julie

I've been performing as a fiddler in bluegrass bands since 2003, and have absolutely loved my own journey as a musician! A lifelong musician, I started on viola at age 9 and played in school orchestra through high school and on into college, even as I earned my degree in secondary English Education

Julie is absolutely wonderful! She’s extremely patient and very talented. I was only able to take fiddling lessons for a relatively short amount of time (less than a year) but I feel that I walked away with an excellent start. Can not recommend enough!
Jennifer
Julie is an amazing fiddle teacher! It is intimidating to take lessons as an adult and she made me feel very comfortable from day one. She is fun and has a laid-back, warm personality. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn fiddle!
Ally

Krisztina is amazing. She has taught me a lot in just a few lessons, and she takes time to respond to my emails and even send me personal videos outside of my lessons! I am lucky to have chosen her :)

I am so excited to take lessons with Jordana! She is incredibly helpful and patient and has really helped me with my setup and playing. She's taught me so much about styles other than classical (she taught me how to chop and how to read a chart), classical technique, and performing. I highly recommend lessons with Jordana!

Online Fiddle Teacher

I have been teaching and performing for over 20 years, and I really love sharing the music with students. Fiddle and folk music is fun music for dancing and singing. I play and teach Celtic, Old-Time, Bluegrass and other styles to students of all ages. Learn by ear and by note. Whether you are an absolute beginner, returning to music after a break, or you know some tunes and want to learn more, I can help you find your "voice" on the fiddle. We call it "PLAYING" , so come and Fiddle For the FUN of it!

About Donna

She knows how to identify what style of learning is appropriate. She knows how to listen, and how to determine what the goals are. She doesn't impose an agenda, but is committed to helping the learner acquire technical skills while making lessons fun and productive. Top marks!
Mercedes
I have been blessed with knowing Donna and taking lessons from her for 10 years. She is extremely skilled, patient, and a joy to work with. She has taught me so much and I always look forward to my lessons.
Linda
Donna came highly recommended by an employee at a nearby music store. She has been great at engaging my teenage daughter in her violin lessons - both with continuing the Suzuki program, and diversifying into fiddle music. Donna is patient and fun and seeks to lead through inspiration, which works really well for my daughter, who is talented but not particularly disciplined about practice. My daughter always looked forward to lessons with Donna - even on Saturday mornings! When we moved to online lessons because of the Covid stay-at-home order, Donna kept the lessons interesting and they have had a nice rapport. Donna has a way of fitting a lot of instruction into a lesson without it feeling boring or labored. She's really helped my daughter appreciate music, not just play the violin.

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. …
