Do you want to play Irish fiddle? Are you searching for that authentic Irish fiddle sound?

In my courses, you'll learn everything you need to know about playing Irish fiddle. Along the way, you'll learn some cracking tunes, but you will learn so much more than that: ornamentation; bowing patterns; phrasing; pulse; emphasis; practice techniques and exercises; as well as some of the rich history and culture of Irish fiddling.

I've taken everything I know from teaching 100s of students -- over 2000+ hours of fiddle teaching -- and put it all into my Learn to Play the Fiddle courses.

Take your Irish fiddle playing to the next level with me!


My FREE starter course is now available, with 10 video lessons (+ sheet music), covering Irish tune tutorials, ornamentation and tips and tricks. Scroll down to join the course!
