What people say about Kitty’s teaching...
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Fiddle Workshop. The whole day was so enjoyable and well paced that I didn’t notice that I was tired until I reached home. Playing tunes from memory is such an advantage I feel, as it really makes one listen to the whole sound and get absorbed into the music….. Liz
Thank you so much for your hospitality, patience, clarity and guidance. I would love to do another day. Heather
Thank you very much for a great day on Saturday. I found it very interesting and incredibly helpful
...You and Garry are really good at making things relaxed and welcoming which is very helpful to me and I'm sure to others too. Paul
Many thanks for the techniques workshop yesterday. It was extremely well planned
and presented, covering areas that were totally relevant to me. The atmosphere and
food were great and the notes look helpful.
Please put my name down for any follow ups. John

“This is the best organised workshop far and wide.”
Rosy - ‘Irish Fiddle Day’ Tutor: Karen Ryan, May 2018
“Dear Kitty, Many thanks for such an enjoyable and constructive day. My head was buzzing with all that we learnt and I now feel inspired to really work on my bowing technique. It was a very good idea to video the exercises as I wouldn’t have remembered them all!
I also loved the friendly atmosphere and delicious food. Who could ask for more?!
Best wishes, Alison” - ‘Know Your Bow’ Tutor: Kitty Greenwood, April 2018
“Thank you so much for all your work in putting on the Stewart Hardy Workshop weekend. Can I be first to put my name down for his next one! I thoroughly enjoyed the mixed instruments workshop today. It is another positive step in breaking my total reliance on sheet music.”
