First online lesson and my Skype was not working. Cory quickly found a workaround. He was patient and engaged. I feel motivated to do my 'homework' and am confident this student/teacher match is a good one. I look forward to many more lessons!

Though "fiddle" and "violin" are technically the same thing, the two are different styles of playing. Fiddle music focuses on either country music and Irish/Celtic music. Fiddle is one of the more fun aspects of the violin.

Antoinette is a gifted teacher. I learned so much in my first lesson with her! She explains everything so clearly. It'll be easy to remember her words and imagery as I practice during the week.

Jonathan teaches my daughter and she has enjoyed her first set of lessons from him so far. She is in orchestra at her Middle School so the summer lessons have helped her improve her technique and when I listen to her practice I have noticed improvement in the sound. Scheduling was easy and he is flexible. It has been a great experience thus far.

Fiddle Lessons

What’s the difference between a violin and a fiddle? The truth is they are actually the same instrument. A violin can be considered a fiddle and vice versa. However, what distinguishes the two are how they are played and in what genre. The instrument tends to be referred to by its more formal name within a classical and orchestral setting. On the other hand, with styles such as the Cajun fiddle, Irish fiddle, Irish Celtic fiddle, and bluegrass fiddle, it is simply referred to as a fiddle. The fiddle puts more emphasis on a free-flow style, while the violin usually adheres to more structured playing.

If you want to learn both styles, it is often recommended that you take fiddle lessons as they will give you an in-depth understanding regarding the difference in techniques and how to effectively employ them in your playing. In general, lessons will provide you with a stronger grasp of both the violin as well as the fiddle, since the information taught is based on music theory which can be applied to both instruments. In addition, fiddle lessons taught by an experienced fiddle instructor will help you progress more quickly and learn proper technique.

When you get started with your fiddle lessons you will learn basics including the components that make up a fiddle, how to tune your fiddle and basic chords. Furthermore, your lesson instructor can serve as a resource for practical tips including what type of fiddle, strings and tuner you might want to purchase. So sign up for our fiddle lessons today and start fiddling your way to musical perfection!
