Becoming a fiddle teacher : started the fiddle at 26 years old.
I’m looking for any advice or informed opinion.
I’m a young french guy who started the fiddle at 26 years old. I loved it. I started working at lot, I first had a classic teacher.
Than I moved to a city where I had some lesson with a teacher that first learned classic and than learnt irish style.
Both said I’m making good progress.
I’m 28 now, and i plan to follow courses into a school that has a trad teacher. The thing is :
I’d like to become a teacher. Teach irish trad, maybe other trad. If I can do it in a association, that would be perfect. More than the diplomas ( I don’t expect people around here to be aware of french music diplomas!)
i’m worried about the skills and the legitimacy.
Can I expect after 10 years of daily practice becoming a fiddle teacher?
I assume it’ll take around 10 years. wrong, right?
If you have exerience as a teacher who started the fiddle as an adult, it’ll be very welcome here!
