Though "fiddle" and "violin" are the same instrument, the difference in title refer to two different styles of playing. Fiddle music focuses on country, bluegrass and Irish or Celtic music.

Beginners typically take 60 minute classes once per week at a recurring time. Young children typically take half hour classes and older children, adult musicians and those on a budget typically take 45 minute classes. The most common lesson length to start with is 60 minutes, as the teacher will need to tune your instrument and help you get set up. Some students choose to take lessons twice per week when a concert is coming up, to catch up from a vacation or if they just want to make faster progress.

In class, you will learn new techniques, receive guidance on how to achieve the best sound possible and learn songs that you like and that interest you. You are expected to take this guidance and practice it thoroughly at home until you feel comfortable with it, so that when you are in class ...

About Antoinette

In-Person lessons are back! I am happy to say that not only do I love my job, but my passion in life has always been teaching. I spend 12-15 hours a day either teaching violin, educating myself on the newest methods and materials, or helping my students outside of class. Your success means e

My son did a 45 minutes class and by the time he was finished he was reading and playing music πŸŽΌπŸ€—. Antoinette made it so easy and simple

Antoinette is, by far, the best music instructor that I have ever hired. Music has always been a part of my life. As a child, I took piano lessons for years and continued on and off through college. As a complete novice to the violin, I was nervous to begin such a challenging instrument as an adult hobby. Antoinette is encouraging, intelligent and incredibly skilled. Her calm demeanor and patience is vital to one's success. She focuses on the building blocks to a successful technique with ease. I am incredibly grateful to Antoinette for reminding me of how enjoyable music can be. I look forward to our weekly sessions around my busy work schedule. Her location is conveniently located within walking distance from the subway in NYC.

I took violin lessons for a year with an instructor I found through a different organization (not TakeLessons)--and I learned more in one hour with Antoinette than I learned in 30 lessons with that other teacher. In just one lesson, I can see that Antoinette is friendly, smart, encouraging, knows her stuff--and knows how to teach (which not every good player can do). I'm an adult, but I bet she'd be just as great with a student of any age.

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!!

Looking for someone to help you reach that next level? Whatever your stringed instrument, I can guide you there. From the rank basics to traditional tunes, to timing and tone, technique and theory, I can show you what you need to make your journey easier. Rely on my 15 years of music teaching experience to save you countless hours of bewilderment and frustration!

My journey as a musician which began at the age of 8 has now carried me to 48 states and a dozen countries, including 4 tours in continental Europe. I spent 7+ years performing, recording, and giving workshops with talented acoustic acts based in Nashville and the southeast. I am lucky to have been involved and contributed to a handful of IBMA and Grammy-nominated albums.

Increasingly, however, I turn my focus toward private teaching.
I find great joy and pride in helping a student reach their goals and surprise themselves with their own potential.
Go ahead and get in touch, and let's try a session together!

I am from the south bluegrass and blues are some of my favorite to teach. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books.
I also offer online group lessons at a highly discounted price. I suggest that all my students join. This is a great option for kids while class is out.

I have learned more from Adam than I had from my two previous mandolin teachers. He is very knowledgeable and skilled in all of the instruments he teaches.
Bob
I play guitar in a local band and we decided we needed mandolin on this part, so I put an ad in Craigslist. Long story short the guy we hired to do the part turns out was a teacher. I always wanted to learn the fiddle so I thought a couple lessons would be enough, but this guy knows so much and so many styles that I'm hooked. I live in Greenfield, so most of my lessons are online

I asked at Downtown Sounds in Northampton who is the best fiddle teacher in western MA. Joe said "Adam Sweet". I called and he responded promptly. I must say, he's very patient and knowledgeable. I've been taking lessons now from Mr. Sweet since 2009 when he was teaching in South Hadley

"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!!"

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. …
