Fiddle & vocal lessons in Victoria BC
I offer fiddle lessons for complete beginners to intermediate/advanced level students. We will learn techniques and exercises to develop a strong technical base with your instrument, help you strengthen your ear training skills, and build your repertoire of traditional tunes and contemporary pieces. You don’t need to have a music theory background to start learning with me – I teach theory built in with your lessons. Lessons are available in person at my home studio in Victoria, or online over video call.
I have been teaching folk fiddle since 2012 – in both group and private lesson settings. I grew up on mid Vancouver Island, studying classical violin with the Suzuki and RCM methods, and classical, musical theatre and folk voice from the age of 5. Later on, at age 10, I began to play fiddle music, and partook in multiple fiddle groups with Cross Canada Fiddle, including ‘Fiddelium’. I now perform professionally with my projects Briars Haven and Finley Rose.
