I just recently started with Dee. She is doing a great job of helping me realistically assess my performance, and constructively set goals to improve the aspects that need work. It's been fun and very helpful.

Our 8 year old son had his first Guitar lesson with Dee this past weekend, and she was amazing. She wasted no time getting down to brass tacks with our son, showing him the various parts of the guitar, how to hold it and within minutes he knew two chords. She was able to keep our kiddo engaged, offered great praise and positive feedback/reinforcement and kept him on task for the entire 45 minute lesson. We could not be happier and cannot wait to see what he learns during his next lessons with her!

Online 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 The American Fiddle Method Volume 1 by Brian Wicklund or You Can Teach Yourself Fiddling by Craig Duncan.

About Margaret

I am a professional violin, fiddle, and viola instructor offering studio and online lessons for kids and adults including adult beginners. I teach out of my home studio in Boise. I have performed in orchestras, chamber music groups, bluegrass bands, and country bands. I have played violin since

Margaret is a wonderful instructor who provides excellent teaching. I really appreciated that she made a point of not only explaining how to hold the bow, the violin, etc, but also explaining why it's important to use certain positions and posture and how it all comes together as one continues to practice. She's also super friendly and how's a very positive and welcoming demeanor.

"The most honest and straightforward teacher

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.

I'm also a music teacher (private lessons and in the classroom) as well as a professional performer. I've found it to be a great pleasure working with Kelvin and I would strongly recommend him as a teacher and a performer."

I learned a few fiddle tunes with her and loved every minute of it! As a performer she brings her charisma onto the stage with her and is an absolute joy to watch perform.

"I met Laura at a Songwriter meet up. I play guitar and the moment I heard her play I knew she was special. I'd been wanted to learn fiddle and when I found out she was a teacher, I signed up. I've been very satisfied. Laura is the real thing. Professional, patient and has good communication skills and a good work flow. I'm interested in blue grass and old time. Lucky for me, Laura excels in these genres. I've been taking lessons for 5 months. I'm making steady progress, but I have to say, fiddle is tougher than guitar. But with Laura's expertise and guidance, I know I'm going to get there."

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. …
