When I stepped into my first fiddle lesson with Michael, I had no idea that I’d go home that night and be able to play a tune. He is patient, intentional, and thoughtful. His approach to teaching bowing is exactly the foundation needed not only to learn his curriculum, but also to pursue further self-guided exploration. He is an excellent fiddle teacher, and I’d recommend him to anyone!
Michael’s classes and lessons have been life-changing for me. He introduced me to old-time fiddling and broke down the intricate rhythmic bowing patterns which are so essential to getting the correct sound. It provided me with the foundation I needed to be able to jam. He makes it very easy to learn!
Michael provides a warm, safe, non-threatening environment and his flexibility allows me to drive my own learning direction and pace. If you’re on the fence about learning the fiddle, Michael is the guy to help you do it . Take the leap. You’ll love it!
