Amazing instructor, always provides detailed notes on what we should practice for the week. Fun charts and stickers to track practice and highlight progress for my 6 year old. Works so well with children and really knows how to listen to them. Highly recommend.

This was our first adventure with virtual teaching. I can't imagine that we could have found a better teacher. My daughter is 10 and Daniel has made her love for violin grow. I have never once had to force her to practice. She watches the videos of their lessons multiple times a week. It has been an absolutely amazing experience.

Wonderful teacher!! Ashley has a great teaching style and is super super nice!! I’ve been playing for 12 years and I’ve never enjoyed playing as much as I have since i started with ashley. highly recommend for all ages!!
Michelle S.
Great start. I am a super-beginner and we are starting with the basics. Today was my first lesson. Ashley is patient, and knowledgeable for a start-up student like me. And she plays a mean fiddle. I asked for a demonstration— I gotta long road ahead but I am excited by the prospects of Ashley’s instruction.
Amanda
I am so glad that I took lessons from Ashley! I had been playing for about a year and a half when I started my lessons in January of 2018. We had hour-long sessions once a week for about a year, but the time always felt too short! We usually learned about a song a week, sometimes more and sometimes less depending on how quickly I picked it up. Since I could already read sheet music, I mostly learned by ear, and Ashley did a wonderful job with slowing the songs down and helping me repeat them until I could play by memory. Now, I'm really glad I learned through ear training because it's an invaluable skill to have! I also really enjoyed playing harmony with her -- so cool. She always had songs hand-picked for me to learn, or, if there was a song that I really wanted to be able to play, she would help me with that one. Ashley is the best -- such a sweet, patient, and encouraging teacher! She even offered to have me play with her on stage! If you have the chance, take lessons from Ashley!!!

I teach violin / fiddle not through one method or genre but a unique blend of various styles, each one taking a fundamental seat in a broader performance curriculum. For example, beautiful classical pieces form our most baseline technique while country western or bluegrass make for a strong and agile bow, not to mention having some tricks to merry up the campfire or front porch gatherings. Pop / Blues / Jazz and Rock n Roll are perfect genres for prospective improvisors and future stage performers. From Lindsey Stirling to Charlie Daniel's Band to Stephane Grapelli I enjoy teaching towards the goals and dreams of every student.

At age 18, she moved to New York City and made a living primarily as a street performer, playing  jazz standards in the Subway and Central Park.    She began studying jazz violin at The New School for Contemporary Music, and perform

Kelly is a very talented and skilled violin player. She makes the lessons very relaxed and is great at teaching online, I've found the lessons so useful as I'm a complete beginner at the fiddle. She's extremely knowledgeable and knows all there is know about the violin/fiddle, I can not reccomend her enough.
Rachel
Kelly is a wiz at the fiddle, and just a music genius all together. She has taught me so many things that have helped me with my skills, and makes it feel easy. She’s also very patient, which makes me feel at more comfortable with the learning process. Anyone would be very lucky to have her for their teacher!

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. …
