Fiddle Lessons in St. Augustine, Fl
Violin / Fiddle
Allen Hood has been playing
Old Time Appalachian style fiddle music for over 30 years. He continues to explore the full range of the Violin, including bluegrass, Irish, regional American and European folk, and contemporary fiddle music. Allen teaches violin / fiddle primarily with a play by ear method, with a secondary focus on music theory and finger-to-note recognition, depending on student interest and ability.

All children and beginners are different, but there are many things besides just the left and right hands for the student and teacher to focus on. We often begin by doing simple bowing exercises, while observing posture, finger, wrist, arm and neck positions, bow handling and tone while playing specific strings. We will also begin memorizing a tune melody by first plucking the strings.
