The violin sings, but the fiddle dances. Or so the old saying goes! In teaching fiddle, I love to bring essential violin technique together with the various styles of diverse music. In the first few lessons we'll explore the style of fiddle you'd like to play and create a path towards that sound. As time goes on, you'll be ready to jump into a bluegrass jam circle, start a ceili or shred like Lindsey Stirling! The direction you take is up to you, and I'm excited to help you meet your goals!

Been fiddling Irish and Celtic for 2 decades now. Know tons of tunes, and can also help my students translate the notation into correct style in performance! To see my teaching style go to YouTube Stephanie Quinn Music and look for my masterclasses. My Celtic and Fiddle performances may also be found on the channel.

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

Want to learn bluegrass, old-time, western swing, country or Irish fiddling? With 18 years playing fiddle and 10 years teaching, I have the experience to help a beginner gain basic skills or an advanced student analyze bowing patterns, moving double stops, backup and improvisational skills and ideas and more. From the student who is picking up the fiddle for the first time to the fiddler who’s been playing their whole life, I hope to inspire a love for traditional fiddle music and culture.

Bluegrass, Blues, Cajun, Country, Old-Timey, Appalachian, Irish, Scottish, British, Celtic, Folk. ¡Hablo Español! I Teach All Ages, at All Levels: Songwriting, Music Theory, Composition Lessons, Arranging for Horns and Voice and Strings, Soloing, Improvisation, Classical Technique, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Latin, Hindustani, Carnatic, and much much more! I have been a pro musician all my adult life, teaching thousands of students over a span of more than three decades! I am a published contributor to the #1 best-selling Jazz Theory book "Jazzology" (published by Hal Leonard - the world's largest music publisher), in addition to having almost 20 books published on the subject of theory and technique! I also have many many professional recordings to my credit that you can listen to online anytime! I am the author of the following books (available on Amazon): "Scales & Modes for the Violin Fingerboard" by Jeff B. and Schell Barkley – 2012 For Violin, Viola, and Cello. Full-color. "Jazz Violin Arpeggios" by Jeff B. and Schell Barkley – 2015 Jazz Arpeggios: Triads, 7ths, 9ths through 13ths – with all alterations. I use the Zoom app for live interactive lessons from the comfort of your home. You certainly have many options available regarding choosing an instructor, but I have to assume that you would like to hire the most qualified teacher to guide you on the journey through the wonderful world of music. Everyone moves further, much faster, and is more likely to stay engaged by learning from a master teacher with decades of real-world professional experience to share. I will give you what you need to know, in order to take you where you want to go!

My teaching methods for the fiddle start with the correct setup of holding the violin and bow to be able to play with easy and not occur an injury or discomfort while learning. I help students learn to read musical notation as well as learn simple tunes by ear to help them have a broad understanding of learning to play the fiddle. I introduce Fiddle methods that come with CD's so that the student can hear and internalize a tune before learning to play it on the fiddle. I get fiddle students together so that they can learn from each other and enjoy fiddle playing at local jams once they are ready to play in a crowd. Fiddle playing is a social event and playing with others is a wonderful opportunity to have fun and learn at the same time. I teach beginners fiddle and also teach classical players the fiddle style to help them enjoy their violin experience. I teach tunes by ear in the Old-Time genre. We start with the basic's of rhythm, learning notes by ear in a particular scale and different bowing patterns to achieve that old time dance sound. I find that classical violin students, both young and old, enjoy a different edge and appreciate their instrument more if they can be diversified.
