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 (https://www.oleanchorage.org/), featuring songs of peace, community, resilience and change.
