Chas E.
My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

A new approach to the tunes they play in the back roads and row houses. Jam with the local banjo player.

Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

Private Fiddle Teacher

Initially trained as a classical violinist, my current passions include Southern Old-Time, Irish, French-Canadian Fiddle music and Klezmer. In June 2011, I became the first teacher in Washington State to be certified in the Mark O'Connor Violin Method, a developmental curriculum of American folk music for students of all levels. A frequent studio recording musician, I also perform locally and tour regionally with various ensembles.

Teaching Approach

In my lessons I offer personalized instruction according to the needs and desires of the student. My teaching philosophy centers around the idea that traditional violin-based folk music ("fiddle") can be used as a tool to learn and refine the techniques required to play the violin.

I believe learning to play the violin can be a rewarding, intuitive and maintainable experience for a person of any age, and that no prior musical experience is necessary. I am also available as a coach for students of orchestra and string ensembles.

Pamela knows how to teach, not just play, the violin. Many people charging for lessons simply were taught how to play once upon a time, but don’t have a plan or an ear/eye for what to work on to improve a new or experienced player. But Pamela is a professional and very serious about her job for someone who laughs every thirty seconds. She’s very fun and vibrant too!
Hilarie Hauptman
For the past two years I have enjoyed private fiddle lessons with Pamela Margon. She is most encouraging and positive while always challenging me to go further. I appreciated her support in the music I wanted to play. As an older student (65), I have enjoyed learning to play by ear; it's like learning a new language, and I have grown in my playing confidence. I look forward to continuing with the fiddle for years to come thanks to Pamela's delightful teaching manner. Highly recommend!
Lisa
I started to take fiddle lessons as an adult with no previous musical experience. I was so lucky to find Pamela as a teacher! She is patient, insightful, encouraging, non-judgmental, knowledgeable...really, she is everything you could want in a teacher.

I was skeptical at first about online lessons but Pamela knows how to use the technology, and it works great.

I highly recommend Pamela as a fiddle instructor!

I have learned more from Adam than I had from my two previous mandolin teachers. He is very knowledgeable and skilled in all of the instruments he teaches.
Bob
I play guitar in a local band and we decided we needed mandolin on this part, so I put an ad in Craigslist. Long story short the guy we hired to do the part turns out was a teacher. I always wanted to learn the fiddle so I thought a couple lessons would be enough, but this guy knows so much and so many styles that I'm hooked. I live in Greenfield, so most of my lessons are online

I asked at Downtown Sounds in Northampton who is the best fiddle teacher in western MA. Joe said "Adam Sweet". I called and he responded promptly. I must say, he's very patient and knowledgeable. I've been taking lessons now from Mr. Sweet since 2009 when he was teaching in South Hadley

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. …
