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.

It's our last evening of classes before Christmas tonight. What a fabulous half-term it's been with Level 2 exploring the structure of tunes with Stewart Hardy Music, and Level 3 learning some fantastic Scottish tunes by Donald Shaw and Charlie McKerron along with their string accompaniments with Melissa Whitehead.
Our next block begins on Wednesday 16th January 2019 - do get in touch if you would like to sign up or if you would like more information.We are all very much looking forward to getting back to Fiddle School on Wednesday. Lots of fabulous new tunes to learn, with many tips and exercises for improving technique. There are a couple of places left if you would like to come along - just send us a message! 😀
