Private Fiddle Teacher

I teach fiddle lessons primarily by ear as I think it's important to retain the aural tradition. My specialty is Irish and Scottish styles, but I also love Quebecois and Cape Breton tunes. I grew up playing Old Time and Bluegrass and have a solid foundation in those styles as well.

We'll learn repertoire and work on developing a stylistically appropriate technique (bowing, groove, lilt, ornaments).

Learning chords and how to provide basic accompaniment can be a fun and empowering approach as well!

About Emily

A product of fiddle camps, late night jam sessions, and extensive Bach technique, Emily is at the forefront of an emerging scene of contemporary violin players. A third generation Southern California native, Emily was drawn to the violin almost immediately upon discovering its existence, and has on

I have taught music for 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.

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 have studied so many styles of playing, played in bands professionally throughout the country, and can teach you to play with amazing technique so you don’t injure yourself!

I will guide you through the process of practice, learning by ear, or learning sheet music. I have a classical background so can work with classical players who want to learn fiddling.

My linguistics background really helps me with understanding how we learn fiddle tunes, how to get a fiddle “accent”, looking at the elements that makes one style different from another, etc.

I’ve taught 40+ students a week for the past 20 years, won numerous competitions, and performed on the BBC Alba and other venues.

About Amy

I am the great-granddaughter of a musician who used to play with Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman in NYC in the 1930s and 40s! I believe every person has the right to be musically fluent, and to have music available to them as a tool for self expression, emotional expression, stress relief, and

I started taking fiddle lessons with Daniel having basically zero experience with the instrument, and in just a handful of weeks, I can't believe how much I've learned! Daniel really excels at tailoring his teaching to my individual needs, interests, and pace of learning. Each week I leave feeling challenged and motivated, but never frustrated. I'm having a great time, and always look forward to my next lesson.
Michelle B.
Daniel is so patient and easy to work with ~ he makes learning the cello seem so easy and natural and has so many practical ways of explaining an instrument I have no prior knowledge of. I had never played a stringed instrument but always loved the cello, so I was a bit nervous to begin. His gentle nature and patience have made me even more enthusiastic to learn. I have been loving each lesson and look forward to the next each time I leave! I'm looking forward to next week already! :-)
Jeff
Super friendly guy, learned a lot at my first lesson and looking forward to my next lesson with him.

"What a wonderful and enthusiastic teacher! My daughter has had fiddle lessons for 2 years in person, and to finally cut down on our two-hour commute I suggested on-line lessons. The computer had a few connection issues on our end that we will definitely iron out before our next session. Lucky for us, Kathleen worked patiently through the connectivity bumps and gave a very upbeat, challenging lesson with all the backup sheet music, recording, and plenty of thumbs up to keep my daughter motivated and practising. We are very happy we "found" Kathleen and highly recommend her as an instructor!!"

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. …
