Fiddle Lessons

Lessons:  Traditional Irish music is a living tradition that's best learned by being passed on from person to person. I teach private Irish fiddle lessons to students of all ages throughout Connecticut and the region and enjoy sharing what I've learned from others. I can also draw on my classical background as needed to help students improve their technique, tone, and intonation on their fiddle, or learn to read music.

Here are a few thoughts from some students:

 "I tried four different teachers before finding Jeanne, all of which were good classical teachers, but weren't really setup to teach Irish music, which is what I wanted to do. I have been a student of Jeanne's for over two years now and she's a wonderful player and mentor. I've improved tremendously and I'm really enjoying learning and playing". ~Jon C.

"Jeanne is a wonderful teacher, flexible regarding schedule and sensitive to the particular quirks facing and presented by the adult student. With her enthusiasm, professionalism and kindness, she is a real gift to the Irish music community." ~Sue B.

"Jeanne is an accomplished musician, a dedicated teacher, and an enthusiastic advocate for Irish traditional music." ~J.O.


 I have also formed the Connecticut Academy of Irish Music to offer group musical instruction on fiddle and other instruments; group classes are offered on Sunday afternoons at the Wethersfield Academy for the Arts, 431 Hartford Ave., Wethersfield, CT.  For more information, contact me.
