Alison’s fiddle and violin lessons both teach good playing technique and how to read musical notation, but in fiddle lessons you’ll learn folk repertoire with particular emphasis on listening skills, ensemble playing and finding your own style.
Already classically trained? Experience a new playing style with a teacher trained in both genres from a young age. Learn folk ornaments and bowings, improve your improvisation and aural skills, and enjoy a wealth of new repertoire from the world of folk music.
Alison also teaches lessons in playing by ear and the basics of music notation to players of any instrument. Please specify which instrument you play on your enquiry form so that she can tailor the lesson(s) to meet your needs.
Regular lessons are based in Bristol; occasional lessons can be booked anywhere in the world (for an additional fee!).
