North East Fiddle School #fiddle #tuition #workshop #northeast #englandVirtual NEFS Classes!

Online fiddle tuition in the comfort of your own home! North East Fiddle School has moved online during the COVID-19 lockdown, bringing the same excellent standards of fiddle teaching into your home – wherever you are. Worksheets, audio files and in-depth video tutorials will take you through exercises to develop your fiddle playing and teach you tunes with bowing, ornamentation and style. You progress through the materials at your own pace, and you can repeat any section as often as you wish. There will be 3 tunes taught for each ability Level by our wonderful tutors, Stewart Hardy and Melissa Whitehead.

Live Fiddle Practice sessions will take place weekly on Zoom, and a group social gathering at the end of the block will be included. These are an optional extra – if you aren’t able to join Zoom (or prefer not to) this won’t impact your progress through the course, and the sessions are recorded for you to play back later.

The cost is £47 for the 5 week block. New resources will be added each week, and all materials will be available for as long as you need them. It’s not too late to join us! Recordings of the previous Fiddle Practice Calls are available and you keep access to the videos for as long as you need them. The next block runs until Weds 8th July with new materials published each week, but you can catch up whenever you are able to.

Please email or use the contact form if you have any queries. To reserve your place please use the Online Booking Form. Payment (by bank transfer, cheque or PayPal) is required to confirm all bookings.

Exciting Announcement!



The North East Fiddle School offers weekly classes on Fiddle Technique and Style on a Wednesday evening at the Westfield School in Gosforth. Our excellent team of tutors teach classes based on fiddle technique and style, for different ability levels. Over the course of each evening all ability groups will be taught by two different tutors, which alternate each half-term, thus allowing for a range of teaching styles and repertoire.

The evenings run on Wednesdays from 6.30 – 9.15 pm and aim to provide an encouraging and stimulating environment for those wishing to improve their fiddle playing and musicianship. Students should be aged 16 or over and details of our full class offerings are available on the Classes page. Please use the contact form to get in touch and for booking details.
