Private Fiddle Teacher

I specialize in helping students learn practice and listening techniques that will allow you to make faster more efficient progress as well as increase your understanding of music and how you best learn to play. I teach many fiddle styles including Irish, Gypsy Jazz Old Time and Bluegrass. I specialize in Irish fiddle, which I have been playing and teaching for 25 years. I have studied in Ireland with numerous masters of the Irish fiddle such as Kevin Burke, Tommy Peoples , Martin Hayes, Matt Cranitch, Oisin Mac Diarmada and many others. I am founding member of the band Beyond The Pale and have taught at numerous camps and festivals including The O’Flaherty Irish Music Retreat.
I also specialize in “Gypsy Jazz” or “ Hot Club of Paris” style jazz fiddle in the style of Stephane Grapelli and played for many years in the very popular Dallas based band The Texas Gypsies.

About Gordon

I love music and have been playing music since I was a small child. And I love helping to spread the joy of music by teaching. I have been teaching fiddle for over 20 years. I specialize in teaching fiddle and especially Irish fiddle, but I also teach many other fiddle styles including Gypsy Jazz ,

I was fortunate enough to attend many years of the O'Flaherty's Irish Music Retreats, and also fortunate to have been able to take under Gordon a couple of those years. He made learning fun, emphasized learning by ear and developing muscle memory, and is also a kind hearted, warm person whom will leave more of an impression than just some knowledge. I would definitely recommend Gordon for those seeking to begin their musical journeys!
Laura
"Mom, I don't want to study violin anymore" my young son said.-Oh no!- I was SO sad but I couldn't force him to play an instrument. And then, Hallelujah! we found Gordon. My boy began to take fiddle lessons with this amazing musician. And thus his very own love for the fiddle was born! He still plays. He is now 28. I can't thank you enough Gordon, for your life long musical influence on my son.
Betsy
I have played in a band with Gordon for 19 years and he is an amazing musician, composer, arranger, engineer, and producer. Additionally, I benefitted from his teachings and I have observed his fiddle teaching sessions with other students. Gordon is great with children and adults and any student will become a better musician because of Gordon’s teachings. I know I have.

Michelle is great! She is very friendly and patient (especially with my poor internet connection). She takes time to show me the details on how to bow and set up my fingering properly. I highly recommend Michelle. I'm very happy I chose her as my viola teacher.

I have been working with Kim for a few weeks and I have learned a tremendous amount and can hear the difference every week as I progress. I enjoy the process she applies to keep it positive and fun yet learn the proper fundamentals required to perform well. I actually tried a few vocal teachers and Kim with her wisdom and experience made it simple who to go with!!

"I have taken lessons with Cody for about 6 months and he has taken me from knowing absolutely nothing about how to play a string instrument to feeling capable of playing a few tunes and excited to play in a jam once things open up again. I especially appreciate that he introduced me to the music of female old time fiddlers like Brittany Haas and Tatiana Hargreaves, and helped me to better see myself in a musical space often saturated by men."

"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!!!"

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. …
