I have been taking lessons with Mel for almost two months.
As an adult learner who tried to learn violin on my own for the last six months I have found Mel to be a lifesaver.
He has been very patient and has helped me to fix all the bad habits I developed. The lessons are a nice mix of theory, skill development and working on fun songs.
I highly recommend him.
Adam L.
My 17-year-old son looks forward to his lessons with Mel. My goal was to restore my son's love of the violin that he started to play many years ago. Lessons with Mel did just that. My son says that Mel's delightful and personable style makes it safe for kids to be kids who are learning and growing. I hear Mel play things during my son's lessons and as a musician, I can tell he is a violinist and a musician of the highest order. I was so impressed. He keeps the lessons focused but fun. My son is already improving and more importantly, he is in love with the violin again. My son and I highly recommend him. He's a gem.

Mel is a great teacher. He is teaching me fundamentals and music theory along the way. He gives me just the right amount of things to practice each week.

Online Fiddle Teacher

As a teacher, I am extremely upbeat and encouraging! I meet students where they are and seek to make lessons enjoyable as well as challenging. I am absolutely passionate about bluegrass and old-time music! I began playing viola in 1972 at age 9, switched to fiddle (violin) in 2003, and have been performing in bands as a bluegrass fiddler ever since! Teaching is in my blood, as I was a full-time high school English teacher for 32 years prior to my recent retirement. I've been teaching fiddle students for the past five years, and have helped many beginning and intermediate students learn how to play songs and continue building their skills. I work primarily with training by ear, but can also help students learn to read music. If you're ready to "pull out the fiddle and rosin up the bow," then give me a call!

About Julie

I've been performing as a fiddler in bluegrass bands since 2003, and have absolutely loved my own journey as a musician! A lifelong musician, I started on viola at age 9 and played in school orchestra through high school and on into college, even as I earned my degree in secondary English Education

Julie is absolutely wonderful! She’s extremely patient and very talented. I was only able to take fiddling lessons for a relatively short amount of time (less than a year) but I feel that I walked away with an excellent start. Can not recommend enough!
Jennifer
Julie is an amazing fiddle teacher! It is intimidating to take lessons as an adult and she made me feel very comfortable from day one. She is fun and has a laid-back, warm personality. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn fiddle!
Ally
Julie is an amazing teacher! She tells you what you need to improve in a gentle way and is always enthusiastic about any progress you make, no matter how small.

Lets get fiddling! I believe in creating well-rounded violinist that can play any style of music. I will teach you a solid foundational technique, including advanced shifting techniques and simple but beautiful vibrato, that will allow you to play any style of music you would like. I teach all of my students how to improvise in a clear, systematic way, and provide a safe and fun environment to practice being musically creative. You will learn how to "sound" like a fiddler AND a classical violinist.

I'm Suzuki Method certified and use a unique blend of method books including the O'Connor Method and a fiddle tableture system I have created. American fiddle, celtic, gypsy, jazz and Mexican waltz's are some of the muscial styles that you will enjoy while learning a solid foundational technique. You will also learn to read music notation right from the get-go. I have lots of experience with teaching individuals with ADHD and Learning Disabilities and have created a visiual strategy to

Nisha has been the absolute best teacher we have found! She has taught 5 of our kids fiddle and they all love it!
Eric Campbell
She was extremely patient and if I had to miss a lesson, she would insist on lowering the price for the month. I wish I hadn’t had to move, or I’d still be taking lessons from her!

Nisha has been my teacher for almost ten years now! I have learned how to play fiddle, while also getting a classical background in music. We study theory and go in depth on writing your own music and improv. She always makes it so fun and easy to learn!!

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."

"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."

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. 🎻🎻🎻🎻🎻"

""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."

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. …
