I was nervous to start learning the fiddle, by ear, at age 63. Katie thoughtfully and skillfully broke down the beginner learning process. Each lesson builds on the last and emphasizes maintaining all the proper techniques as you continue to progress to the next stage. She breaks the tunes into manageable chunks and explains and demonstrates the proper bowing and left-hand techniques to enable you to get the correct timing. Katie has developed a great educational fiddle curriculum for all ages to take advantage of. She is a master teacher!
