Private Fiddle Teacher

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.

Elizabeth is an outstanding teacher, and my daughter looks forward to her weekly lesson. My daughter has grown so much on the violin since she started studying with Elizabeth, including being selected for the symphonic high school orchestra as an incoming freshman. I love the way Elizabeth weaves in historical context and artistry. Glad we signed up!

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

Orange Blossom, Mississippi Sawyer and Devil's Dream are a few of the basic fiddle songs I like to teach. The key to Fiddling is being able to play in tune and fast with a few basic rhythm patterns. I teach theory, scales, rhythm, pattern recognition, how to work with a metronome from slow to fast, proper bow grip and placement as well as proper posture for the violin.

My daughter and I had our first lesson with Erin together. We both had a lot of fun and learned alot in the first lesson.
James
Erin went above and beyond to get me my first ever violin/fiddle lesson on my birthday as part of a surprise from my family. As someone who plays other instruments but has never touched anything with a bow, I was very thankful to have Erin to introduce me to the instrument with patience but also thoroughness and clear expertise. Very much looking forward to continuing lessons with Erin as I begin to learn this instrument.

always fun and informative!

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!

We discussed how to hold a bow and, since I have some arthritis in my hands, he was very open to other possible options that might work better for me.

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. …
