RachelPrivate Violin or Fiddle Lessons (Including American country and fiddle music!)
Hi, there! With over 15 years' experience in teaching hundreds of children and adults, and over 25 years' experience performing all over the US and in Europe, I am confident in my ability to work with you to achieve your goals! I specialize in viola and violin lessons, in many styles, as well as music theory.
As a musician, I have toured and performed internationally, playing and singing with an American-Celtic folk group (Tullamore). I currently sing and play guitar and fiddle, performing and touring with an award-winning Americana group called Brackish Water Jamboree. Additionally, I play first violin with the Hampton Roads Philharmonic orchestra here in the US. I can work with you in many styles, including not only classical, but also Celtic, American folk or "old-timey", American country, blues, jazz, and rock styles.
Students describe my style as encouraging, humorous, and relaxed, and after working with hundreds of children and adults over the last 15 years, I am confident in my ability to work with any student, at any skill level, including those with special learning needs or requests. We would have individual, live video-chat music lessons in English, and we can choose a learning method together that best suits you and/or your family's needs.
DarrenIrish Traditional Fiddle Music [Playing / Composing]
I studied for my undergraduate in Classical violin & Irish Traditional Fiddle at the Cork School of Music and have been awarded many prizes in recognition of my Classical & Traditional playing. I keenly compose a lot of Traditional Irish music and Electronic music also. I will be moving to Paris in the coming months and would like to gauge interest. I am available for Skype interviews also now.
PaulLearn to Play Old-Time Fiddle (Appalachian and more)
I teach Old-Time fiddle, beginning and intermediate level. I prefer students who have some experience with fiddle, violin, or bowed string instruments, but I will accept students with no experience, too.
To make the most of your learning experience, weekly, one-hour lessons are highly encouraged.
I will teach you fiddle bowing techniques, cross tuning, low tuning, learning tunes from ear, jam etiquette, the social aspects of Old-Time music, as well as some history of the tunes and the source fiddlers.
My specialty is cross-over students, especially those coming from a background in classical music. Can't get your violin to sound like a fiddle? I can help.
