I specialise in Australian style fiddle music and Scottish/Cape Breton music, however years of playing has left me with a massive repertoire American old timey and Irish music as well as a good understanding of those styles.
I focus on oral learning as it is the best way to build up your memory for tunes. It will also help you in a jam session and allow you to learn the style as it was originally taught. However once my students have a good ability to play by ear I teach them to read music to open them up to tunes books and other resources.
I try to have a strong emphasis in my lessons on learning to jam with other people and improvise both through jamming in my lessons and teaching chord/scale/rhythm theory. Also if people are interested in learning other instruments outside of the fiddle I teach guitar, harmonica and the mandolin.
I’m 26 years old, really friendly and approachable and occasionally hand out chocolate.
