It was an excellent lesson and I am feeling more confident with the chanter.

I started taking lessons with Peter in person before the pandemic in his studio. He is very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. When I initially told him that I was looking to learn to play the medieval bagpipes, he was very upfront in saying that he did not have any experience with medieval bagpipes, but he was willing to try if I was.

After the pandemic began we started with remote lessons and I find them just as useful- if more convenient. I highly recommend Peter as an instructor.

Very thoughtful lesson!

As a French student, I can tell that Concetta is perfectly adapting to my way of learning. I know music for a long time but I'm a beginner with viola. I thought it would be a very hard exercise to practice but with Concetta's advices, I constantly and rapidly improve my technique. Five stars is the minimum I can give !
Bryan P.
Concetta is a wonderful instructor - prior to my lesson I was feeling nervous - not sure what to expect, not feeling worthy, etc. - she quickly put me at ease and we had a very productive 1st lesson - well worth the investment of my time and money
Joseph
I haven’t ever enjoyed a music lesson as much as I do with Concetta.
Concetta is warm, charismatic, and truly loves what she does which inspires me to keep going.
It’s the hour that I look forward to the most each week!

Private Fiddle Teacher

As a fiddle player with over 20 years of experience with old-time and bluegrass music, I can take you from first bow to performance! No matter your skill level I believe there's always something to be learned about music, and I apply this to each student and every lesson. I've won multiple contest awards including the CSOTFA Adult Open Championship so if it's contest fiddling you're after I can help with that, and can provide backup guitar for practicing as well. I have an extensive library of obscure and hard-to-find old time tunes at your disposal. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

My first lessons with Elizabeth was great - we covered some crocheting techniques, that as a self taught crocheter, I wasn't familiar with. Looking forward to my continued work with her!

What's the difference between a violin and a fiddle?
According to the age old joke, "a fiddle is fun to listen to!"

While there's really no difference in instrument, only in style, and with no disrespect meant to Classical violin, my other passion, if you're looking to loosen up and have fun playing along with others by ear, then fiddle may be for you!

Though my specialty is Celtic music, particularly Irish, I can help you learn the basics of any style of fiddle music that catches your interest, including Old time/ American, Bluegrass, Scottish, and more! Lessons are focused on learning songs by ear and building a solid foundation in basic instrument skills that will allow you to play with ease and style with a focus on what -you- want to learn!

About Cieran

I love music, and I love helping other people find and develop their love for music! I teach all styles of violin (including fiddle) and piano to ages 4 and up, with a strong emphasis on finding what kind of music each student enjoys and building a life-long love of music with solid technical founda

Cieran is a great teacher. I am an adult student who studied some as a child. So he assessed my skill level and took it from there. I feel we are going at my own speed, and it is very enjoyable for me. Cieran is highly qualified to teach and is very pleasant to work with.

Cieran was amazing with my 3 year old! He explained everything and was very patient!

Cieran is absolutely fantastic. Regardless of what type of style you are trying to learn, he is the teacher for you. He has a great passion for music and is knowledgeable, kind, and patient. Every lesson is tailored to what you would like to learn. Not only that, but he is an extremely gifted player, so after hearing what I aspire to sound like, I am motivated to practice more than ever!

I had a great first lesson with Mel! He was very enthusiastic and encouraging. I appreciate how willing he is to work with me towards my goals, which are pretty specific. I look forward to continuing to work with him on fiddle and ear training!
Kaitlyn
Mel is fantastic! I have only been taking lessons with him for a short time, but I feel like I have really made a lot of improvement! He is extremely patient and really cares about music. You can truly tell he puts his all into his lessons and truly cares about his students. Music is his passion and his optimism and love for music is contagious.

I decided to learn the violin and had no experience or background at all. Mel helped me start off with the essentials and is making sure I know proper form! I am beyond grateful that I found him and recommend him to anyone looking to learn. I promise you won’t regret hiring him to help you along your musical journey. I am most definitely looking forward to all my future lessons! Thank you Mel!
Jack
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.

"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"

"My son (almost 7-years-old) just finished his first lesson with Margaret. She was able to explain things in a way that he understands. He was able to get a good idea of how to hold his fiddle and bow...which is a hard skill to teach online. He is very shy, but was comfortable with having me sit next to him. After the lesson, he told me, “That was worth every minute!” He loved it."

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. …
