More About Me
I am a professional violinist, classically trained, and I specialize in getting beginners started out the right way, with a solid foundation that can be used for ANY style of playing. I utilize the Suzuki Method to establish that foundation, and from there, I can teach you to teach yourself to fiddle.
I have 2 online courses, and more on the way.
The first course is that beginner's foundation, using the Suzuki method. That class is called, "Fabulous Fundamentals for Violin".
The second course is a beginner's fiddle course. It is called "Fabulous Fiddle Fundamentals". However, this course is not for sissies. It assumes Suzuki Book 1 proficiency, so you sort of have to be able to play already, have some ear training, good bow control, intonation, posture, and form. So if you need to take the Suzuki Class first, do it. Otherwise, you can dive right in to my INTENSE fiddle course, where you will learn 24 fiddle tunes including hoedowns, jigs, and waltzes in American and Irish style. You'll learn how to play with a band, how to lead into a tune, how to end it, how to change it up, how to play back-up chords, how to read a chord chart, bow patterns like the Nashville and Georgia Shuffle....like I said, I will teach you how to be your own teacher!
I have played in several fiddle bands, both Celtic and Bluegrass. I don't consider myself a Bluegrass fiddler. But I can fiddle like a mad woman! More importantly, I can teach YOU the tools you need in a way that you will understand and absorb.
Come check out my youtube channel to get to know my style! Here is a video introducing the fiddle class:
