A fun, easy and informal way to learn fiddle techniques from different traditions and also a chance for more advanced players to proficiently take on new styles. My wife and I also run fiddle workshops covering all the styles shown here and more, so do contact me if you are interested! Please visit my website fiddleworkshops dot co dot uk if you'd like to listen to what we do. 99% of what I teach is done "by ear" without the use of sheet music. I have always used this approach as once mastered, it opens up more possibilities for freedom of expression to the player. It's not as difficult as a lot of people think! On request I also use sheet music but I still encourage all of my students to learn by ear.
