Private Fiddle Teacher

Want to learn how to play the fiddle and have some fun?!
My name is Oceana I am from Vancouver, Canada. I have been playing the fiddle for 23 years (since I was three years old). I believe that having a passion or hobby in your life especially introduced at a young age helps teach you how to reach goals, be creative, learn discipline and most importantly brings happiness! Music is a great way to express yourself and fiddling is all about fun and dancing!

I will teach you how to sing with your instrument and dance with your heart. It’s never too early or too late to start fiddlin! I teach all ages, from 3 to 103! Wether you have a classical background or you’ve never played before, or maybe you want your child to be a music prodigy, I’ll jump on your level and we will learn and have some fun together! I use a combination of sheet music and ear training-you will learn how to play by ear and also enough music theory to play with your favorite band. Practice makes perfect, but even ...

About Oceana

I began my music studies at the age of 3, as soon as I could hold a tiny 1/8th size fiddle my mom put me in lessons. I have taken fiddle/violin lessons from Calvin Cairns, Daniel Lapp, Carlisle Wilson, Steven DeVries and Garth Wilson in Victoria, BC. Glenn Graham and Jennifer Roland in Cape Breton,

Private Fiddle Teacher

I specialize in helping students learn practice and listening techniques that will allow you to make faster more efficient progress as well as increase your understanding of music and how you best learn to play. I teach many fiddle styles including Irish, Gypsy Jazz Old Time and Bluegrass. I specialize in Irish fiddle, which I have been playing and teaching for 25 years. I have studied in Ireland with numerous masters of the Irish fiddle such as Kevin Burke, Tommy Peoples , Martin Hayes, Matt Cranitch, Oisin Mac Diarmada and many others. I am founding member of the band Beyond The Pale and have taught at numerous camps and festivals including The O’Flaherty Irish Music Retreat.
I also specialize in “Gypsy Jazz” or “ Hot Club of Paris” style jazz fiddle in the style of Stephane Grapelli and played for many years in the very popular Dallas based band The Texas Gypsies.

About Gordon

I love music and have been playing music since I was a small child. And I love helping to spread the joy of music by teaching. I have been teaching fiddle for over 20 years. I specialize in teaching fiddle and especially Irish fiddle, but I also teach many other fiddle styles including Gypsy Jazz ,

I was fortunate enough to attend many years of the O'Flaherty's Irish Music Retreats, and also fortunate to have been able to take under Gordon a couple of those years. He made learning fun, emphasized learning by ear and developing muscle memory, and is also a kind hearted, warm person whom will leave more of an impression than just some knowledge. I would definitely recommend Gordon for those seeking to begin their musical journeys!
Laura
"Mom, I don't want to study violin anymore" my young son said.-Oh no!- I was SO sad but I couldn't force him to play an instrument. And then, Hallelujah! we found Gordon. My boy began to take fiddle lessons with this amazing musician. And thus his very own love for the fiddle was born! He still plays. He is now 28. I can't thank you enough Gordon, for your life long musical influence on my son.
Betsy
I have played in a band with Gordon for 19 years and he is an amazing musician, composer, arranger, engineer, and producer. Additionally, I benefitted from his teachings and I have observed his fiddle teaching sessions with other students. Gordon is great with children and adults and any student will become a better musician because of Gordon’s teachings. I know I have.

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!

"Peter is very patient and exceptionally knowledgeable. He is very analytical in his teaching. I am a new student (only a few lessons) and I am confident he will be able to provide the critical but positive instruction and encouragement that I need. His enthusiasm and passion for music is contagious. In fact, he gives detailed oral histories and music theory explanations related to the topic of the lesson. Most teachers boot you out when time is up - not Peter - he always finishes on the right note. Plus he has an adorable cat assistant, Rory, as a side kick."

"My son (almost 7-years-old) just finished his first lesson with Margaret. She was able to explain things in a way that he understands. He was able to get a good idea of how to hold his fiddle and bow...which is a hard skill to teach online. He is very shy, but was comfortable with having me sit next to him. After the lesson, he told me, “That was worth every minute!” He loved it."

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. …
