Private Fiddle Teacher

I've been playing the fiddle for 26 years and have been teaching for 10 years. I welcome students of all ages and have taught people between the ages of 5 and 60. I started out learning with a fiddle teacher playing by ear and then later switched to a classical teacher so I have a broad range of music that I love. But my favorite style to play is fiddle music.

About Julianna

I have been playing the fiddle since I was 7 years old and I took lessons for 13 years. I started out taking lessons from a fiddle teacher who taught me entirely by ear. Later on, I also took classical violin lessons and I teach both styles, however I will just be focusing on fiddle music with my on

I work with students exclusively by ear, concentrating on development of rhythm and the syncopation of melody against rhythm.

About Cindy

Cindy has been making music for as long as she can remember. She was the assistant director of a synagogue children's choir by age 14 and has directed and sung with many community choirs and pickup groups since then. But it wasn't until 1996 that she discovered the autoharp and began teaching and p

Cindy is an absolutely amazing music instructor. She's a true musician but she's also masterful at sharing what she knows. I'm learning old time fiddle in the West Virginia tradition, and I don't take this for granted. Cindy's knowledge of and relationship to this music goes deep. While I become a much stronger player under her guidance, I am also learning about the lineage this music comes from, and finding that her words of wisdom apply to other instruments I play, and even my growth beyond music. Seriously - Cindy is fantastic.
Eugenie
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.
Marybeth M.
Cindy is teaching me how to play Old Time fiddle tunes and technique in the cross tune of GDGD. I find her to be an instructor that is both process-oriented (providing information about the music background"what,when,who,why") and product-oriented (how to play/technique). She always begins lessons with a review from the past lesson and the homework provided that she records and sends to me. Her demonstrations are very clear and are at a rate and pace comfortable to me. She provides clear verbal cues throughout the lessons. Cindy is very strong in task analysis, breaking down each tune part, beginning with bowing. Her feedback throughout lessons is both positive-specific and corrective-specific. Every lesson is highly enjoyable and filled with encouragement. I am a retired college professor in teacher education, and I know about the constructs of what makes a high quality teacher - Cindy, demonstrates this to me. I feel fortunate to have Cindy as my fiddle instructor.

*PLEASE ASK ABOUT PRINTABLE GIFT CERTIFICATES!* As a fiddle player with over 20 years of experience with old-time and bluegrass music, I can take you from first bow to performance! No matter your skill level I believe there's always something to be learned about music, and I apply this to each student and every lesson. I've won multiple contest awards including the CSOTFA Adult Open Championship so if it's contest fiddling you're after I can help with that, and can provide backup guitar for practicing as well. I have an extensive library of obscure and hard-to-find old time tunes at your disposal. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

About Elizabeth

Hi there! My name is Elizabeth and I was 9 years old when my grandma taught me how to crochet - and I've been writing patterns and making custom creations ever since.

Elizabeth was such a great help! I started a shawl a couple of years ago and after making a mistake that I didn't know how to fix, I got off track and set it down. Elizabeth got me back on track in one lesson! I had little hope for being able to figure it out, and sure enough we did. Thank you!!

I have been taking lessons from Elizabeth since June of this year. She is an excellent teacher! Very patient, sets goals that are achievable but also push you to be better. I'm in my 60's and decided to learn to play violin now 3 months later I can really hear the difference in my ability. My journey is far from over but I know I have an excellent guide with Elizabeth. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn or increase their playing ability. Great teacher! Thanks!

This was my fist class, Elizabeth was very professional and her lesson was very informative. I look forward to my violin journey with her guidance.

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!

Jeff brent is an amazing Musician and teacher as well as a man who cares about his students, His systematic approach enables the student to go as far as they want! He worked with my daughter who played violin and piano with Jeff. Eventually she was writing music and was second chair violin at RCC Community College. Her Piano was amazing as well. She also helped other students in high school and college. She loves music like her mentor Mr. Brent. I have also been a student of Jeff fo about 12 years. At first I knew nothing about music except I loved it and I wanted to share music with Itzel.Now, I play Guitar and I am learning how to play saxophone as well. I am also a teacher at RUSD and I use my music to help my children learn how to learn phonics vocabulary story structure and how to write a song. Music in the class really is a game changer and it really inspires my children to learn vocabulary and language skills. Now, I am a gigging musician and I have played in bands coffee houses restaurants and even the streets. I love all of it. Now I am beginning to write songs and I am looking forward to my next chapter in my Musical Journey. Music is a huge part of my life and it fills me with hope and joy everyday of my life. Thank you Mr. Brent, You are a teachers teacher and I am so blessed to have you in my life. Mr. Brent you are one of the best!

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. …
