More About Me

Learn old-time fiddle in person or online!

I’m available to teach in person or online via Skype, FaceTime, or Google Hangout. Whether you are new to old-time fiddling or want to explore some advanced playing, I can help you with your old-time fiddling. My teaching focus is on learning techniques to help develop your old-time ‘sound’ while also learning great tunes.

After each lesson, I can provide a video of the tunes played slowly and up to speed.

There are several themes or tracks we can pursue, including:

* squirrelly tunes from West Virginia, Kentucky, and all over

* solo fiddling

* fiddling in a stringband

* playing for square dances (choosing the right tunes and tempo, working with callers, interacting with the dancers)

*playing in banjo / fiddle duets


*beyond breakdowns

* ‘fix it’ lessons – bring a tune you aren’t happy with and I’ll show you some different approaches to playing it
I am glad to prescribe what we work on; we can also work together to come up with what works best for you.

Get in touch with me at with any inquiries or questions!
