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.
Our next block of 5 weeks begins on Wednesday 15th January 2020. Bookings will be open for new students from 5th December, so please get in touch via the web form to reserve your place.

Happy New Year everyone! We hope you have had a lovely festive season.
We also want to say THANK YOU! 🤩🎻
We have now completed two years of classes at North East Fiddle School and are so grateful for all your support. We have worked with nearly 60 people on their fiddle playing journeys in that time - with over 30 of those becoming long-term attendees and regularly attending weekly classes, and it's wonderful to have over 100 likes on the Facebook page!
Huge thanks to our fabulous tutors - currently Melissa Whitehead and Stewart Hardy Music, but also to Grace Smith Music, Sophy Jess Ball and James Boyle who have tutored with us. Thank you for such superb high-quality fiddle tuition, good humour and patience! 😊 ... See MoreSee Less
