Excellent class and introduction. William has the fiddling background I am looking for. He is easy to work with and very knowledgeble.
Martin N.
thanks for a great lesson.
James J.
William was a great mentor! He was patient and comprehensive and very supportive. His knowledge of the bagpipes and passion for teaching really showed and I gained invaluable knowledge myself. I should mentioned not only did I come away with knowledge of the bagpipes but a confidence to play them. Highly recommend William!

I use Brian Wicklund's American Fiddle Method series.

A new approach to the tunes they play in the back roads and row houses. Jam with the local banjo player.
These a system of hearing the keys and chords that never change through time.

Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

I have taught music for over 10 years and believe students should get to play what they want to play! Students are asked to come up with a list of songs and/or artists they would love to play. Through teaching chords, note reading and theory, the song possibilities are endless! I also can help the aspiring singer/mandolin player to be able to both play and sing simultaneously.

I have a degree from Bowling Green State University (Ohio) in Music Education. I've taught lessons for over 10 years and truly love working with eager students of all ages

Rachel's amazing. She is definitely teaching an old dog new tricks.

Best instructor ever. Very patient. Knows how to handle an old guy like me. My playing doesn't really deserve someone as good, but I'm thankful to have her.
Julie
We love Rachel!!! She is patient and kind. She carefully explains what my daughter can do to improve her technique and tone. She is intentional in her instruction, making sure the basics are solid. She is an excellent bass instructor. Thanks Rachel!

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 ,

Blaine
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.

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. …
