For fiddle, mandolin, tenor banjo & melodeon, learning to read music is a good idea to be able to pick more tunes up - I can teach that at the same time if needed, or teach by ear without it. People say that I am enthusiastic about music. Parents are free to sit in the music room or next door. I have successfully taught from 8...

To maintain a balance of technique and interest, I encourage students to suggest songs they may wish to learn. I then...
