“My son and I have been going to Jules for fiddle lessons for just under 2 years. My son started when he was 7 and because of Jules’ relaxed friendly approach & skillful teaching he has remained enthusiastic and achieved so much. He can play a range of tunes from memory and has been commended by music teachers at school for his skill. I myself went from never having touched a fiddle to now having a repertoire of almost 30 polkas, reels, jigs etc. that I’m able to play from memory.” Rob Willox
Jules (Julia) provides folk fiddle/violin lessons designed to suit your abilities and interests. Teaching is both ‘by ear’ and/or from sheet music and music reading skills can also be taught at the same time. She supports learning by providing recordings of tunes being learned on CD and sheet music to take home when appropriate.
Having learned to play later in life, Jules understands both how much fun playing an instrument can be, and how challenging – so she will make it as easy as she can for you.
Lessons are usually an hour long and they can take place at your home, at our place near Edinbane or some other convenient location on Skye. Charges are £30 per lesson. For the very young, she offers shorter lessons at a reduced rate. Charges include all extra materials (recordings and sheet music).
Areas covered include Portree, Edinbane, Uig, Dunvegan, Broadford, Staffin.
Jules also has violins of all sizes to suit all ages for sale.
