Violin & Fiddle Lessons Practice Tip of the Week: March 19, 2018
While you were practicing the hard parts of your music, you may have become tense or frustrated, or forgotten to sing or play musically or with good tone quality or technique. End your practice time by playing or singing something you like that is easy for you. Relax and "perform" it for yourself, playing with your very best technique and musicianship. During this part of your practices, develop a "repertoire" of music that you feel very comfortable and confident playing or singing. Then you'll always have something ready if people ask for a performance. 

YES, We have regular recitals and concert opportunities!

What's the difference?
There are no real distinctions between violins and fiddles, but some say it is the style of music they play. It is not common for a classically trained violinist to play folk music, but today, there are many fiddlers with classical training. -Wikipedia
