Have you always wanted to learn to play fiddle? I welcome students from fourth grade to adults, including beginners.  Playing the fiddle can bring you a lifetime of joy, friendships and adventures. With your effort, and my guidance, you'll succeed!

For twenty-one years I taught beginning orchestra in the Anchorage School District, and I've taught private lessons ever since I left college.  Sign up for a free preview!

I've taught workshops for many years at Alaska City Folk Arts, the Anchorage Folk Festival, the Alaska Folk Festival, Alaska String Camps, Dancing Bears Dance Camp and more.  I love working with both children and adults.

Some of my favorite workshops to present:

Celtic fiddle, rounds,  and songwriting. I also have some very fun slideshow / presentations about Protest Songs (including job safety, civil rights, and war protests).  A later course shared powerful songs, love songs, tragedies and silly songs.  I have taught  courses with Ole in Anchorage (, featuring songs of peace, community, resilience and change.
