Looking for a traditional fiddle teacher in Northern Virginia, USA … any leads?
I have a fiddle-playing friend in Northern Virginia who’s taught herself for several years with help from her mother - but now she’s after a teacher to improve her general technique and learn things like position shifting etc. The thing is, her parents are making her go to a classical teacher because they can’t find anybody to teach her the trad style, and this teacher seems to be going down the hardline classical route eg. making her hold the bow at the frog when she’s always used a more "Ni Mhaonaigh" type hold, higher up the bow.
Any info on trad teachers in the area would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot, S
