Personal Description:

Hi, My name is Mhairi, I'm from Glasgow and currently living in Newcastle. I am studying on the Folk and Traditional Music course at Newcastle University. My specialisms are in Irish and Scottish traditional fiddle styles. I have been playing the fiddle for 13 years with the Southside Fiddler's School in Glasgow. I have had amazing opportunities to attend and perform with the Southside Fiddlers at various events all over the world such as NAFCO, Ethno Sweden, Scottish Fiddle Festival and Celtic Colours (Nova Scotia). I have had the privilege of being tutored and mentored by a number of talented fiddle players such as Catriona MacDonald, Louise Hunter, Jenna Reid, Gerry O'Connor, Anna Massie and Duncan Chisholm.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching children and adults between the ages of 3 and 63 years old for 8 years and have been involved in teaching weekly group and individual lessons and many summer schools with the Southside Fiddlers.

I have a Scottish PVG disclosure which is the equivalent to a DBS.

Tutoring Approach:

My main aim is to make music and lessons fun while also learning and improving. I work at a pace suitable for the learner and tailor lessons individually. I teach by ear but will provide notation, recordings and exercises.

Fees are:

30 minute lesson (£15.00)
45 minute lesson (£20.00)
1 hour lesson (£25.00)

I am very flexible with my availability and offer both in-person and online lessons.
