I work with students exclusively by ear, concentrating on development of rhythm and the syncopation of melody against rhythm.

About Cindy

Cindy has been making music for as long as she can remember. She was the assistant director of a synagogue children's choir by age 14 and has directed and sung with many community choirs and pickup groups since then. But it wasn't until 1996 that she discovered the autoharp and began teaching and

Cindy is an amazing fiddle teacher. I came to her for help in learning old-time fiddle technique. I wanted something more than just learning the tune. Cindy is helping me improve my bowing style, be a better listener, and achieve a sound I always dreamed of but didn't know how to do.

When it comes to teachers, Cindy is the best of the best. She'll lay out exercises to build your skill step by step. If you love old-time music and want to excel at playing the fiddle, Cindy's your gal.

Cindy is teaching me how to play Old Time fiddle tunes and technique in the cross tune of GDGD. I find her to be an instructor that is both process-oriented (providing information about the music background"what,when,who,why") and product-oriented (how to play/technique). She always begins lessons with a review from the past lesson and the homework provided that she records and sends to me. Her demonstrations are very clear and are at a rate and pace comfortable to me. She provides clear verbal cues throughout the lessons. Cindy is very strong in task analysis, breaking down each tune part, beginning with bowing. Her feedback throughout lessons is both positive-specific and corrective-specific. Every lesson is highly enjoyable and filled with encouragement. I am a retired college professor in teacher education, and I know about the constructs of what makes a high quality teacher - Cindy, demonstrates this to me. I feel fortunate to have Cindy as my fiddle instructor.

I feel really lucky to have connected with Cindy on takelessons.com during the pandemic. I actually cannot think of another time a teacher has taught me so much so skillfully - and it's all happening over the internet! Cindy has a fabulous sense of humor, she is honest and good at her profession. She's more than a fiddle teacher, she shares a music tradition with wisdom and care.

William was a great mentor! He was patient and comprehensive and very supportive. His knowledge of the bagpipes and passion for teaching really showed and I gained invaluable knowledge myself. I should mentioned not only did I come away with knowledge of the bagpipes but a confidence to play them. Highly recommend William!

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.

What's the difference between a violin and a fiddle?
According to the age old joke, "a fiddle is fun to listen to!"

While there's really no difference in instrument, only in style, and with no disrespect meant to Classical violin, my other passion, if you're looking to loosen up and have fun playing along with others by ear, then fiddle may be for you!

Though my specialty is Celtic music, particularly Irish, I can help you learn the basics of any style of fiddle music that catches your interest, including Old time/ American, Bluegrass, Scottish, and more! Lessons are focused on learning songs by ear and building a solid foundation in basic instrument skills that will allow you to play with ease and style with a focus on what -you- want to learn!

About Cieran

I love music, and I love helping other people find and develop their love for music! I teach all styles of violin and piano to ages 4 and up, with a strong emphasis on finding what kind of music each student enjoys and building a life-long love of music with solid technical foundations. I hold

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.

I have been teaching and performing for over 20 years, and I really love sharing the music with students. Fiddle and folk music is fun music for dancing and singing. I play and teach Celtic, Old-Time, Bluegrass and other styles to students of all ages. Learn by ear and by note. Whether you are an absolute beginner, returning to music after a break, or you know some tunes and want to learn more, I can help you find your "voice" on the fiddle. We call it "PLAYING" , so come and Fiddle For the FUN of it!

About Donna

I love teaching and sharing my love for music. I have taught violin/fiddle to students as young as 3, and as old as 92, and had fun with all of my students. I love seeing the enthusiasm grow in absolute beginners, adults as well as children, and encouraging them to find their own joy in music. I

"I have known and worked in the studio with Gordon for over 10 years. He has produced many of my recordings and played multiple instruments wonderfully on those recordings. Though I haven't taken lessons from Gordon he has taught me many things during our recording sessions. Gordon is one of the best fiddle/violinist players I know. He also plays, guitar, bass, mandolin and other instruments very well.
Gordon is a positive fun individual who loves his work and it shows. In my opinion he is a fantastic teacher who I highly recommend."

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. …
