Depending upon what part of the country you live in, Scottish fiddling teachers can be very hard to find. Often they are too far away to travel to for regular lessons.  Now, thanks to technology, you can learn traditional Scottish fiddling from wherever you live.  

Lessons through video conferencing are the same as a lessons in person minus the physical teaching touch.  This is a drawback only for students who are brand new to the instrument.

Instruction generally includes:

  • Traditional Scottish ornamentation

  • Learning traditional tunes by ear and by music

  • Learning how to interpret written music

  • Standard technique

  • Historical perspectives

  • Demonstration & Discussion

  • Resolution of Questions

Lessons are generally 1 hour in length.  Frequency of lessons can be adjusted to suit individual schedules.

Through online lessons, Melinda has taught students from fifteen states and Canada.
