Free Fiddle Tip Vault

Interested in joining the Free Fiddle Tip Vault?

Fabulous! I'd love to help guide you in the process of improving your Irish fiddle skills!

This is a collection of tips that is designed to cover the areas most aspiring Irish fiddlers are looking to improve when they land in my corner of the internet. Each tutorial lasts around 5-10 minutes, and most lessons will provide you with an action item you can apply to your practice sessions right away.

You can expect to receive instruction around:

  • Improved tone, rhythm and phrasing by working on your bow arm technique
  • Specific tune type rhythm patterns to help you develop the real feel for Irish fiddling
  • Adding ornaments to tunes you already know (or learning a new tune with the knowledge on where to include them)
  • Getting more tunes under your belt quickly as well as combining tunes into sets
  • Playing confidently in front of others

I believe in teaching Irish fiddling as a whole, which means going beyond teaching tunes and really looking at all the different skill sets you can develop to become your best version of an Irish fiddler. The Free Fiddle Tip Vault will get you started on all of the areas listed above -- from there you can dive deeper into further instruction with me, and/or use the skills you'll develop through the exercises in the Vault as part of your greater learning toolkit moving forward.

Each tip is designed to give you one specific thing to focus on, whether that's in the practice room or out at a session. You can watch through all the materials in an afternoon, or pace it out at your convenience as you spend more time applying each tip to your practice.

While you could make these tips work for you at any level, they are best suited for you if you are already familiar with how to play your instrument and know a few basics about Irish fiddling. For that reason, I recommend signing up if you have at least 1-2 years of playing experience in any genre and are comfortable telling the difference between a jig and a reel.
