Fiddle Lessons & Workshops

I am available for private online lessons, and in Derbyshire, for any age/ability, in fiddle, clog dancing, violin and viola. I am also available for group workshops, online or in person.

If you are interested in tuition or have any queries, I would love to hear from you!

You can email me at: gracesmithmusic10@gmail.com , or get in touch through the contact page.

As well as being in demand for private tuition, I have had experience of working in a wide range of settings and abilities/ages, and am proud to have had the pleasure of working with Folkworks, Sage Gateshead, North East Fiddle School, Newcastle Music Service, Newcastle University, Lakeland Arts, York Young Fiddlers and Cream Tees (Music at the Heart of Teesdale).

Student Testimonials:

“Really enjoying my lessons with Grace – she’s an excellent teacher, and I feel like I’m learning a lot. We’ve moved on to doing lessons over Skype during lockdown, which is working well. Thanks!”

“Firstly my background – I reached Grade 5/6 back in school but hadn’t played in ~20 years and was interested in getting back into playing the violin. I started off trying to do this myself but got given lessons with Grace as a Christmas present – I can safely say that it has been the best present in years!

My playing has improved steadily as we have been rebuilding and fixing old bad habits. Most importantly having learned the violin the first time around based solely on a diet of Grades (and not really enjoying it!), Grace has helped to enjoy the violin again as well as open my eyes (and ears) to the world of folk music. Lessons are always well prepared and informative; Grace is supportive, patient and able to adapt quickly using on her experience. Highly recommended”
