Private Fiddle Teacher

Initially trained as a classical violinist, my current passions include Southern Old-Time, Irish, French-Canadian Fiddle music and Klezmer. In June 2011, I became the first teacher in Washington State to be certified in the Mark O'Connor Violin Method, a developmental curriculum of American folk music for students of all levels. A frequent studio recording musician, I also perform locally and tour regionally with various ensembles.

Teaching Approach

In my lessons I offer personalized instruction according to the needs and desires of the student. My teaching philosophy centers around the idea that traditional violin-based folk music ("fiddle") can be used as a tool to learn and refine the techniques required to play the violin.

I believe learning to play the violin can be a rewarding, intuitive and maintainable experience for a person of any age, and that no prior musical experience is necessary. I am also available as a coach for students of orchestra and string ensembles.

I always looked forward to my lessons with Pamela. She brought kindness, patience, and a sense of fun to the session. I learned a lot about music as well, and she honored my intentions for learning an instrument, helping to set a pace that was comfortable for me yet exciting and challenging.
Jemuel
Pamela knows how to teach, not just play, the violin. Many people charging for lessons simply were taught how to play once upon a time, but don’t have a plan or an ear/eye for what to work on to improve a new or experienced player. But Pamela is a professional and very serious about her job for someone who laughs every thirty seconds. She’s very fun and vibrant too!
Hilarie Hauptman
For the past two years I have enjoyed private fiddle lessons with Pamela Margon. She is most encouraging and positive while always challenging me to go further. I appreciated her support in the music I wanted to play. As an older student (65), I have enjoyed learning to play by ear; it's like learning a new language, and I have grown in my playing confidence. I look forward to continuing with the fiddle for years to come thanks to Pamela's delightful teaching manner. Highly recommend!

Private Fiddle Teacher

Orange Blossom, Mississippi Sawyer and Devil's Dream are a few of the basic fiddle songs I like to teach. The key to Fiddling is being able to play in tune and fast with a few basic rhythm patterns. I teach theory, scales, rhythm, pattern recognition, how to work with a metronome from slow to fast, proper bow grip and placement as well as proper posture for the violin.

About Erin

I have performed with small chamber ensembles, orchestras, quartets, and trios. I enjoy playing for church

Landon is a kind and knowledgeable teacher. His patience and broad experience with various aspects of music make him a great resource.
Avi
My gifted son needs challenging and stimulating activities to help him balance all of his feelings. I was extremely hesitant with signing him up because he is only 4. However he instantly connected with Landon and said he has a fantastic time. I absolutely love how Landon has a gift to communicate music without watering down terminology but slowly speaking so that children can understand. He truly has a gift. We look forward to the next one.
Lorraine S.
When the student is ready the teacher will appear and am I glad! This is working out great. Landon is knowledgeable, patient, and talented. Just what I need to expand my musical endeavors.

My first lesson with William was fantastic and relieving. For a person who has no musical background, I was very nervous coming into these lessons, I even had practice equipment that was sub-par. However, William was extremely patient with me, helped me to operate the sub-par equipment, and directed me to getting decent equipment. His calm nature and patience put me at great ease and I actually felt more confident in pursuing my desire to play the pipes.

William is a fantastic musician and teacher. Recommended him highly.

"Alani is a charming and patient teacher. I especially appreciate (for me) her focus on fiddle vs. violin techniques. (The "fiddle" teachers near me are violin players and don't really understand the difference in playing technique.) I highly recommend her if you're looking for some fun fiddle lessons."

"My children take fiddle, bango and guitar lessons from Bryan. He makes the lessons fun and engaging. He does an amazing job teaching them on their level, and my children excitedly look forward to their weekly lessons. He is very professional and detailed, taking the time to send videos each week for them to use to practice. We are very thankful for him, and since beginning music lessons, all 3 of my children have progressed quickly in their knowledge and love of their instruments."

I was skeptical at first about online lessons but Pamela knows how to use the technology, and it works great.

"Cindy is an amazing fiddle teacher. I came to her for help in learning old-time fiddle technique. I wanted something more than just learning the tune. Cindy is helping me improve my bowing style, be a better listener, and achieve a sound I always dreamed of but didn't know how to do.

When it comes to teachers, Cindy is the best of the best. She'll lay out exercises to build your skill step by step. If you love old-time music and want to excel at playing the fiddle, Cindy's your gal."

"He is very good with me. I'm not a very good student. I have bad habits and I'm overly sensitive to criticism, yet he has not made me feel bad at all about my playing if you want to call it that. I also have a short attention span and can't read music fluently. But his patience is much appreciated, and each week get a little better at it all. I recommend him to those trying their best to sound a little better."

What's the Difference Between the Violin and Fiddle?

Is that a fiddle... or a violin? It's a common question, and one that baffles many beginner musicians. So what's the answer? When it comes to the actual instrument, there actually aren't any differences. What distinguishes a violin from a fiddle is what kind of music you're playing with it. A musician playing folk, bluegrass or country, for example, would most likely refer to their instrument as a fiddle; those who play other genres (jazz, classical, etc.) typically call theirs a violin. …
