North East Fiddle School
The North East Fiddle School strives to provide the very highest quality of fiddle tuition. A safe and nurturing learning environment encourages participants to improve both as fiddle players and musicians, increasing their stylistic awareness and appreciation of a strong fiddle tradition. Technique, style, musicianship and ensemble are covered through progressive, weekly classes.
We work with extremely talented tutors, who are committed to the highest standards of fiddle tuition and professionalism and who seek to develop their own skills and practice. This allows us to celebrate the full fiddle tradition of the North East of England through teaching its repertoire and tunes. By offering tuition in other regional styles we will raise awareness of the differences between, and commonality within fiddle traditions. We aim to continue to develop the local fiddle tradition by embracing all aspects of fiddle playing and through the encouraging of the creation of new works. This will be showcased through concerts and community events, and enhanced through links with other regional musical centres.
