Opening Evening

A huge thank you to everyone who registered for our first half-term and came along to make last night a very special evening as we launched the North East Fiddle School. We were a little nervous beforehand, but the enthusiasm from all 23 (yes, twenty three!) participants, and the fact that everyone found the venue and seemed quite excited, helped us through the evening. From Grace’s lovely rendition of Snowy Monday, to Stewart’s ranting (the dance step, I mean – he wasn’t in a bad mood!) it will be an evening that stays long in my memory!

Many thanks to all at Westfield School who have helped us with the venue, and to all our friends and colleagues who have been so supportive. We are already looking forward to continuing the great work on fiddle technique and style next week.

Happy Christmas

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and may your New Year be filled with fiddle music! It’s not too late to sign up for our first half-term, in fact what a wonderful last minute Christmas present! Send a message or contact me via the website Use the contact form on the website, or email me on

We are very excited to announce the launch of the North East Fiddle School! This project has been a long time in Stewart’s ‘5 year plan’ phase, but has now quite suddenly come to the ‘let’s do it right now’ phase! We are delighted to say that Grace Smith will be joining Stewart with the tuition, allowing us to offer two ability groups throughout each evening.

Ali Say will be keeping things ticking over on the admin side. Do say hello on social media, and any sharing of our publicity would be very helpful indeed. Please use the contact form to get in touch and for booking details.
