I am an experienced fiddle and violin teacher, based in Bristol, UK.
I am a classically trained violinist, and I have been playing folk fiddle for 30 years. I teach all levels from complete beginners to advanced players, and I specialise in teaching fiddle in the Irish, Scottish, English and Scandinavian styles.
Can I teach myself to play the fiddle?
Many of the great Irish, Scottish and English fiddle players have taught themselves to play. But a good teacher will definitely get you playing the way you want more quickly...

I have been playing the violin for nearly 30 years, and growing up in a folk music family, I have played folk fiddle in the English, Irish and Scottish styles for nearly as long.
I am a classically trained violinist, but I now specialise in teaching folk fiddle. I am a well known player on the Irish session scene in London, Bristol and Bath, and have spent time playing in Scotland, around Ireland and further afield. I have played with a number of Ceilidh bands over the years, including in Bristol and Bath.
