I began my music studies at the age of 3, as soon as I could hold a tiny 1/8th size fiddle my mom put me in lessons. I have taken fiddle/violin lessons from Calvin Cairns, Daniel Lapp, Carlisle Wilson, Steven DeVries and Garth Wilson in Victoria, BC. Glenn Graham and Jennifer Roland in Cape Breton, and Jason Anick, and Darol Anger in Boston.

I have played in various groups including Daniel Lapp’s BC Fiddle Orchestra, Calvin Cairns Conservatory Fiddlers and a Celtic band called Jane’s Way. We played at music and performing arts festivals, pubs, and square dances around Vancouver Island for 10 years. I studied Irish and Scottish fiddle music in Cape Breton for 1 year and in Dublin, Ireland for 1 month.

I started my teaching career in 2009 at a music studio called Duncan Music. I fell in love with teaching and decided to further pursue my music career at Berklee College of Music in Boston. There I studied Performance and Music Business while also teaching music lessons on the side. Music has brought me here to LA where I continue to inspire people to love and learn the joy and power of music.

What’s the difference between a fiddle and a violin?!
The most commonly asked question with the simplest answer- fiddling is more fun! It's the exact same instrument, played with a more upbeat casual feel. Classical violin is great for learning technique, but when you want to let loose and get your toes tapping while still learning fast precision and technique, come play with me!

Oceana is a great fiddle teacher! We have a lot of fun together and I’m learning a lot and quickly! Fiddle isn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be! I definitely recommend Oceana she’s the best music teacher in LA!

Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

Want to learn how to play the fiddle and have some fun?!
My name is Oceana I am from Vancouver, Canada. I have been playing the fiddle for 23 years (since I was three years old). I believe that having a passion or hobby in your life especially introduced at a young age helps teach you how to reach goals, be creative, learn discipline and most importantly brings happiness! Music is a great way to express yourself and fiddling is all about fun and dancing!

I will teach you how to sing with your instrument and dance with your heart. It’s never too early or too late to start fiddlin! I teach all ages, from 3 to 103! Wether you have a classical background or you’ve never played before, or maybe you want your child to be a music prodigy, I’ll jump on your level and we will learn and have some fun together! I use a combination of sheet music and ear training-you will learn how to play by ear and also enough music theory to play with your favorite band. Practice makes perfect, but even if your busy life doesn't allow you time to practice, I will work with your schedule and you'l be fiddling in no time!
