Fiddle tutor for Sidmouth & Shrewsbury Folk Festivals
Tel 01584 841564
Tuition: experienced players
Perhaps you already know some folk tunes, but can't seem to bring them to life? Kitty
will show you how to play with greater flair and confidence, including ornamentation,
bowing patterns, phrasing and improved technique.
Lessons with Kitty can equally
be a great introduction to traditional music for the classically-trained. Whatever
your starting point, Kitty will inspire you with a refreshing and infectious repertoire
of jigs, reels, airs and hornpipes from Britain and around the world.
Tuition: complete beginners
No previous musical knowledge or experience is needed. Kitty will guide you through
the basics, developing technique and musicianship through an enjoyable repertoire
of traditional tunes.
“I’ve always thought music was closed off to me, like a different language, but now
you’ve opened it up and I can learn something I thought was out of my reach” -
Subhania, Shrewsbury Folk Festival
”Brilliant... anyone starting out with fiddle playing really couldn't have a better
introduction than what Kitty will teach you” - Sue Hiscox
“Thanks for the lesson, very enjoyable as usual. Doing it over the internet wasn't a problem for me at all, once you settle into it it's fine. I actually forgot that we were using Zoom” - Alison Adams

Zoom Online group play-along & tune-learning sessions
If you enjoy playing along with others, or wish you could - perhaps in a pub session
- then this is the next best thing! And if you aren’t yet a confident player, it’s
BETTER - you get to play along with fiddle, guitar, concertina, melodeon, harmonies
- but no one else can hear you!
Friendly, sociable & fun. See Facebook.com/WisewoodFolk for details.
