Service Description

Did you know that the violin and the fiddle are indeed the same instrument? The difference between these two names often comes down to what style of music you are playing, for example, someone who plays folk music is more likely to say "fiddle" whereas a classical musician will say "violin". So, are you interested in learning how to play the fiddle? These lessons are designed to help beginners who have never played the instrument (or any instrument for that matter) to experienced violinists who understand the foundations of playing but want to know the intricacies of how to sound like an Irish fiddle player (and no, I don't mean scratchy and out of tune!). These lessons also welcome experienced Irish fiddle players who would like to improve their technique and can help with holding the violin and bow for optimal playing in all keys, along with learning techniques such as vibrato and shifting so that no tune is out of bounds! These lessons can take you through how to correctly set up and hold your instrument, how to read music (with a heavy emphasis on listening to lots of music in the genre for all levels), correct bowing patterns, ornaments, rhythm, phrasing, and numerous tune types such as jigs, reels, polkas, slides, hornpipes, airs, and more! Get in touch now to organise a trial lesson and you will be playing at Irish pub sessions before you can say "tada gan iarracht!".
