Private Fiddle Teacher

I have been teaching Irish fiddle style for 15 years. I will usually start the student in either a basic fiddle book or Suzuki to learn how to do proper bowing, positioning and technique. The student will be able to read notes. If desired, I will also teach the more advanced about chord progression through the songs. I do know the appalachian style also but it is asked for less frequently.

Ms Chris was great my daughter really enjoyed her first lesson. Ms Chris was easy to work with and made my daughter comfortable that she felt free to ask questions and make mistakes without worry. My daughter is looking forward to the next lesson.

If you’re looking for a dedicated, knowledgeable and patient strings teacher, you will love Mrs. Heins. Both of my sons have been taking lessons from Mrs. Heins for several years (one for viola and one for cello). They have learned so much under her instruction, such as earning All-County and All-State honors. They also practice their live performance skills twice a year during informal musical concerts. Mrs. Heins also offers participation in the Royal Conservatory Music Development program, which can earn your child credit for college. She is a gem and should you choose her, you won’t be disappointed.

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.

Peter is an outstanding instructor! He has a nice space for teaching and works to understand where the student is starting from - making sure to emphasize a base of fundamentals that will see you through for the rest of your piping career. I highly recommend him!
Amy
Peter is very patient and exceptionally knowledgeable. He is very analytical in his teaching. I am a new student (only a few lessons) and I am confident he will be able to provide the critical but positive instruction and encouragement that I need. His enthusiasm and passion for music is contagious. In fact, he gives detailed oral histories and music theory explanations related to the topic of the lesson. Most teachers boot you out when time is up - not Peter - he always finishes on the right note. Plus he has an adorable cat assistant, Rory, as a side kick.

Online Fiddle Teacher

If you are looking for a fiddle teacher who makes learning fun and who also teaches proper fundamentals (such as posture, finger position, bow control, tone, etc.), then I believe I would be a great fit for you. I have noticed that many young fiddle players learn songs quickly, but then come to a halt in their learning because they do not know the proper fundamentals to keep them going. Since I teach from a classical standpoint (I mostly teach classical violin students), I make sure my fiddle students are not just learning fun songs quickly, but are learning them with solid fundamentals. I use the American Fiddle Method, which provides a large number of fun and exciting fiddle tunes.

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’ve been a studio musician and a touring musician out of Nashville for many years. I’ve had toured in some of the biggest bands in country music and have played the Grand Ole Opry stage several times. Below I will attach a portion of my resume for futures students. Lately I have quit touring and have been teaching from home and selling Violins through the Internet primarily all over the world. Aside from fiddling I also was classically trained and play an array of stringed instruments. I teach by ear, by sheet music, by nashville number system ... Being in the Studio so much through out the years, I’ve had to play an array of styles and techniques.

Here is a portion of my resume:

Josephine has helped him strengthen his playing using songs that he knows as well as introducing him to new Celtic tunes that he is really excited about. She's also teaching him to personalize his playing with the use of ornaments. We are all really happy with his online lessons. Thanks, Josie!"

"He is very good with me. I'm not a very good student. I have bad habits and I'm overly sensitive to criticism, yet he has not made me feel bad at all about my playing if you want to call it that. I also have a short attention span and can't read music fluently. But his patience is much appreciated, and each week get a little better at it all. I recommend him to those trying their best to sound a little better."

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. …
