Georgia is an experienced fiddle player and folk singer who has worked regularly in the UK and Europe, with an eclectic musical background. Brought up studying classical violin and working her way through the Grade system, Georgia's interests and playing style moved to explore folk traditions whilst studying A-Level Music.

Georgia studied with tutors including Catriona MacDonald, Stewart Hardy, Katheryn Tickell, Anna Massie (violin), and Chris Coe, Sandra Kerr, Nancy Kerr and James Fagan (voice).

Tutoring Experience:

ALL LESSONS CURRENTLY ONLINE - In person lessons with PPE screen will resume when safe to do so.

I have experience teaching 1:1 lessons from the age of 6 - 70. A range of beginners and advanced players. I have experience teaching both classical styles, as well as already seasoned classically trained players who want to explore playing in various folk styles.

As well as private 1:1 lessons, I have experience running workshops in schools, and at major folk festivals, as well as summer schools. These include vocal training workshops, songwriting, arranging, composing tunes, learning a tune by ear, and working as part of a big band.

Tutoring Approach:

ALL LESSONS CURRENTLY ONLINE - In person lessons with PPE screen will resume when safe to do so

Full video lessons. A typical lesson includes:

1.warm up
2.Preparation exercises
3.In depth tune tutorial with recommended bowing
4.Ornamentation walk through
5.Tune played with accompaniment, for you to play along when confident
6.PDF download of sheet music

I specialise in English, American, and Scandinavian tunes and styles of playing, however am capable of teaching Irish/Scottish and French styles of playing. I also use the fiddle to accompany myself vocally, so am able to teach techniques such as chopping, and chugging patterns. Training a students musical ear and ability to understand what they hear is a primary focus in my lessons, with limited aid of sheet music to start off with.

I take a pedagogical approach with regards to my teaching; tayloring lessons to an individual rather than following a set 'one size fits all' method.
