Jason, you are a fine friendly face among so many on line teacher folk. I will be returning often.

— James Dexter

Best tutorial! Haven't picked up a violin or cello in 30 years but you made it ridiculously easy to learn to play this. Other videos people made were so much harder to follow. Keep it up! I can't wait to learn more!

— Deneen Kozielski

detail, patience and kindness.

Play-along tracks

Practice becomes fun and productive when you do it with play-along tracks.

There are full play-along tracks for each tune at different tempos:

There are also “exercise loops” which focus on key parts of the tune or technique:

These help you to practice difficult sections. They also teach and train you how to practice more effectively, for they help to develop the good habits of deliberate practice and focus.

A drone is a hypnotic, repeating tone which you can use to practice:

  • Playing better in tune
  • Adding variation to tunes
  • Improvisation

Color-coded tabs

The tabs tell you where to place your left hand fingers. They are color-coded so you can you recognize repeating patterns. This helps you to learn tunes more easily and quickly.

Sheet music

There is sheet music for students who already know how to read. And if you want to learn how to read music, stay tuned! We are working on a music-reading course for fiddlers.

Step-by-step Course

  • When you learn new techniques, you will also learn tunes specifically picked to help you practice that particular technique.
  • Techniques are practiced in successive modules with progressively more challenging exercises so that you continue to build on basic skills.
  • Flexible design allows students to have a choice of what tunes they learn within each module.
