Amazing instructor, always provides detailed notes on what we should practice for the week. Fun charts and stickers to track practice and highlight progress for my 6 year old. Works so well with children and really knows how to listen to them. Highly recommend.

Landon is a kind and knowledgeable teacher. His patience and broad experience with various aspects of music make him a great resource.
Avi
My gifted son needs challenging and stimulating activities to help him balance all of his feelings. I was extremely hesitant with signing him up because he is only 4. However he instantly connected with Landon and said he has a fantastic time. I absolutely love how Landon has a gift to communicate music without watering down terminology but slowly speaking so that children can understand. He truly has a gift. We look forward to the next one.

When the student is ready the teacher will appear and am I glad! This is working out great. Landon is knowledgeable, patient, and talented. Just what I need to expand my musical endeavors.

Private Fiddle Teacher

Want to learn bluegrass, old-time, 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, 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.

About Cody

I was first inspired to play the fiddle by my grandfather, Tom Smith. Many of my cousins started learning traditional instruments around the same time and we had a lot of fun jamming at family gatherings and at music festivals in our home state of Indiana. In 2015 I was proud to carry the family tr

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.
Liam
Here are the pros: Cody is a very nice gentleman. He’s an experienced player and great teacher, very patient, respectful, with a good demeanor, and is easy to talk to about practical stuff so that I can play or jam with others more quickly. I study with him once a week for 75 minutes online from NJ. He answers my questions, helps me with technique, and then we work on a song that I want to learn such as our current song is Buck Owens country song Truck Driving Man —he’ll show me how he would improvise and do the back up— putting in classic authentic bluegrass/country sounding fiddle double stops, slides, hammer on licks. I am having a blast learning new stuff and feel I am quickly progressing — I am confident you’d enjoy his teachings too. But you don’t have to take my word for it, instead just listen to his playing on YouTube- it speaks for itself. I wanna play like him.

Here are the cons: even at 75 minutes a week the time just flies by too fast, I don’t want the fun to stop. I look forward to my lesson every week.

I have over 20 years of profession touring and studio experience playing with some of the biggest names in the business that I bring to my lessons. I studied music in school and have continued to teach over the years which gives me the ability to use teaching and music school language with real world live performance experience. If you want to learn to play the way the pros do and have a lot of fun in the process, then this might be for you. My approach involves learning songs that you want to learn and teaching you techniques and theory in the process. Music is fun and should also be when taking lessons. Let’s get started!

I really enjoy taking saxophone lessons with Ana. She is extremely knowledgeable in topics related to saxophone, jazz, and improvisation. Her lessons are very organized, intellectually stimulating, and she provides just the right amount of structure while allowing me the space to develop my own creative ideas. I highly recommend taking a lesson with her. You’ll thank me later!
Christine
I have played clarinet for 5 years now and am working on music for solo pieces and band class. Ana gives me lots of material to work on and I am feeling more confident about my playing!
Amanda D.
I'm a classically-trained flutist and have been taking Jazz improv and theory lessons with Ana for four months. I have learned so much from her - she has opened my eyes to jazz and made it fun and approachable. The lessons have given me a deeper appreciation when listening to jazz, improved my listening skills, and made me a better player. I never thought I would be able to do improv, and after a few weeks of lessons it came very easily to me. I highly recommend Ana to anyone who wants to learn jazz improv, regardless of what instrument they play!

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.

"I saw a post on Facebook by Alani that she was giving fiddles lessons. It had been a while since I picked up the fiddle and thought that this was the best way to get back to playing. I messaged her and we set up a date and time for the lesson. The lesson was amazing, we were both a little nervous but it didn’t stop us from playing some awesome music. Alani was really patient with me as I hadn’t tuned or played my fiddle in a good while. After the lesson, Alani sent me audio files of the music we played so that I could listen back and continue learning. Overall a great lesson, and I hope to take another soon!!"

She is also able and willing to work on what I’m interested in but also points out things she thinks I need to improve on. On my first lesson she started me on some embellishments for a tune I had started teaching myself (Whiskey Before Breakfast) a made a recording for me. 🎻🎻🎻🎻🎻"

Kelvin's unparalleled enthusiasm for life and music shines through in his playing and teaching style. He shows a strong proficiency in many different styles and on multiple instruments.

He's reliable, experienced, professional, and a great guy all around. One of Kelvin's main strengths is his ability to convey a given subject matter in a way that is meaningful, constructive and easily understood.

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. …
