Private Fiddle Lessons & Instructional Camps

Private Lessons in Portland OR or San Francisco

I offer private lessons at my home in NE Portland, and also in San Francisco, CA during my frequent visits there. I teach all levels, and emphasize learning by ear, and acquiring techniques that can be applied to all styles. My primary focus is bluegrass, but I also teach old-time, Cajun, Traditional Irish, and other styles.

Skype Lessons

I have Skype students all over the world, and can accommodate a variety of time zones and schedules. Skype has become a very effective tool for teaching, and all lessons are followed up by a recording (generally slow and up to speed) summarizing the key topics covered.
