Huge thanks to Grace Smith, Kevin Lees and Niles Krieger!

What a great start to 2024! There has been loads of fabulous input from Grace on our Wednesday evening calls alongside Stewart, as well as at our Saturday workshop day in Block 1, and Kevin shared a delightful video tutorial (plus there was a lovely surprise visit to our final Zoom call of the block!)

Grace continued her Zoom work with us in Block 2, and it was great to have Niles Krieger join us for the first time on the Block 2 Saturday workshop.

Join us in Block 3 for new video tutorials from Kevin and Stewart, and Grace will be teaching us a new tune for our Wednesday Live Teaching section. In our Fiddle Practice, Grace will move to look at right hand technique, whilst Stewart focuses on useful jig bowing patterns.


NEFS Winter Residential 2023

Another glorious weekend was held at the beginning of December, and despite the icy weather we had a great time with lots of music and a wonderful atmostphere.

We are thinking of doing it all again next year, so save the dates! Fri 29th Nov – Sun 1st Dec 2024.

Fiddle tuition online in the comfort of your own home, with Zoom calls and Video Tutorials on YouTube
North East Fiddle School worked hard to continue to bring the same excellent standards of fiddle teaching into your home during lockdown – wherever you are. We found this worked so well for adult fiddle learning that we are continuing to deliver regular fiddle practice and tune learning on Zoom, alongside in-depth tuition in the form of on-demand Video Tutorials, to work through at your convenience.

In-person workshops
There will be a full Saturday of in-person tuition for each block, including learning new tunes and all the relevant techniques required, plus a chance for a session to play our core repertoire together. We are also continually developing our offerings, so look our for our winter Residential Weekends, our brand new Summer Workshop Weekend, as well as occasional Virtual Workouts on Zoom.

Access to previous materials
As all of our Online Resources (including worksheets, audio files, video tutorials and recordings of our live Zoom calls) can be worked through in your own time, you can still sign up for previous courses. Please see the Shop for all the available Online Blocks.
