TEACHING

I love teaching! I am available for private and group lessons (worldwide via Skype or in person in the Boston area) as well as workshops and camps. Please be in touch so we can discuss what kind of lesson will work best for your interests and needs. Rates available upon request.

 

Private & Group Lessons

I teach many different fiddle styles including: Irish, Scottish, Quebeçois, Scandinavian and Old-Time. If you'd prefer to learn about general music or technique, I'm happy to help you with that. I like to have a conversation with the student beforehand so I can get a better idea of what you'd like to get out of the lessons as I tailor the material to your needs as best I can. Bringing a recording device is highly recommended so you can go back and review the lesson.

 

Workshops

Workshops are a fun way for groups of students to work together and build a deeper musical understanding. I can tailor workshop topics to your needs and have conducted topics including: Scandinavian Fiddle, Old-Time Fiddle, Backing Up Tunes as a Fiddler and Tune Writing.
