I instruct in the Scottish style of fiddling, with a rounded approach, including introductions to the Cape Breton, Highland, Grand Northeast, and Shetland regional styles.

About Peter

I am a traditional Scottish musician specializing in 18th century music. I have studied Highland bag piping since 2001 and Scottish Fiddling since 2002 (with a background in classical violin). I teach both Scottish Fiddle and Highland Bagpipes, as well as Scottish Small pipes and Border pipes. I

I started taking lessons with Peter in person before the pandemic in his studio. He is very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. When I initially told him that I was looking to learn to play the medieval bagpipes, he was very upfront in saying that he did not have any experience with medieval bagpipes, but he was willing to try if I was.

After the pandemic began we started with remote lessons and I find them just as useful- if more convenient. I highly recommend Peter as an instructor.
Colin B.
Very thoughtful lesson!
Cathy
Peter is an outstanding instructor! He has a nice space for teaching and works to understand where the student is starting from - making sure to emphasize a base of fundamentals that will see you through for the rest of your piping career. I highly recommend him!

It was our first lesson today: Kelly took the time to listen to my daughter patiently, even though my daughter stutters and is shy when speaking. I appreciate that she took time to make her feel comfortable.
Richard
Kelly is a great instructor!!! I first saw her perform with Lost Walks and then Juice of the Barley. Her istruction has been great covering these styles plus a lot of classical technique as well. She has really improved my playing.

Kelly is a great violin player and a really good teacher. She can play with begginers like me and help me understand the basics that I need to know.

I teach beginner bluegrass fiddle using an approach designed to help students be able to learn both by ear and with sheet music, and to prepare to play with other musicians or attend bluegrass jams, as well as play with good technique and posture. I teach children age 6 and older, and adults, and welcome adult beginners. Students can choose to work from either the book Jack Tuttle's Bluegrass Fiddle Primer, or The American Fiddle Method Volume 1 by Brian Wicklund.

Margaret has been great! My 13 year old is enjoying lessons and is having fun learning a new style. Margaret gives clear directions, demonstrates how to play and explains everything really well. She recommends different bands to watch and listen to as well. She was understanding when I had to change the schedule for a couple lessons, which I really appreciated. We are so happy to have found such a wonderful online teacher.

at intervals other than weekly. Thank you, Catherine!"

What's the Difference Between the Violin and Fiddle?

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. …
