Welcome to the brand new North East Fiddle School, an initiative to provide Fiddle Tuition in the North East of England. Beginning in January 2018 we will be offering weekly classes on Fiddle Technique and Style on a Wednesday evening at the Westfield School in Gosforth.
Tutors Stewart Hardy and Grace Smith will each teach two classes, one based on technique and one based on style, for two different ability levels. Over the course of each evening both ability groups will be taught by both tutors. Initially, students should be aged 16 or over, and these classes are not suitable for absolute beginners.
The evening will run from 6.30 – 9.15 pm and aims to provide an encouraging and stimulating environment for those wishing to improve their fiddle playing and musicianship. For those not able to come for the whole evening, each half can be attended separately (6.30 – 7.45 pm focusing on technique, and 8 – 9.15 pm focusing on style). Participants will be able to sign up for the first course of five weeks, running from 10th Jan to 7th Feb 2018.
The cost of each class is £45 for a five-week course, or come to the whole evening for £80 per five-week course. Please use the contact form to get in touch and for booking details.

Looking forward to seeing everyone for Week 2 this evening! I think we will escape the worst of the snow and get home before the next batch arrives from the west, but do take care in case it gets icy. We begin the workshops at 6.30 pm and there will be a sign in sheet in both teaching rooms, so you can head straight to the rooms you were in last week. ... See MoreSee Less
