Violin/Fiddle Lessons

Early lessons emphasize a groundwork both in note reading and ear training.  Tunes for beginning students will be chosen particularly for the concepts they contain, and may be from a variety of genres.  Rhythm and chord structures of use to students wishing to play in jam sessions or bands will also be addressed.
