Have you always wanted to play fiddle but haven’t got round to it yet?
Did you have Classical lessons at school but never made the transition to Folk?
I am now pleased to offer Folk Fiddle and Classical Violin lessons in Penistone – (other areas possible, please contact me for details)
Having first had Violin lessons at school, I took up Classical again after a few years break. At around the same time I discovered Barnsley Folk Club, realised that Folk was the way forward and ditched studying for Grade VII for an evening course in Folk Fiddle at Leeds College of Music.
I now play with Barnsley folk trio String Theory, help to run beginners trad music sessions and play for the Spiral Dancers maypole team. I love teaching and am also very patient!
Lessons are available on a weekly, ad-hoc and one-off basis. The ability to read music is not essential and lessons can be tailored to suit the aims of the student.
Adult beginners especially welcome. Instrument hire also possible – contact me for details.
