About the Course

The Absolute Beginners course helps students to familiarise themselves with the violin (fiddle) and its accessories as well as building confidence to putting bow to the strings and play their first Celtic fiddle notes.
Students may know at the start that they aren’t ready to attend a Beginners course, or who start the Beginners and find that it’s too advanced and would like more background.
Students can either pay for an Absolute Beginners course, and progress to the Beginners course upon completion free of charge or enrol on the Beginners course and then choose to complete the Absolute Beginners course first.

Students can join the start of the next available Beginners course when they are ready.

The course includes instructional videos, tunes to apply the techniques, three ‘live’ Q&A sessions, during weeks 2, 4&6 and also reviews and replays. Students can attend in their own time, and Q&A sessions are held live with an instructor and are recorded in case you want to listen again.

Beginners and Intermediate courses are also offered.

Some basic materials will be supplied throughout the course but you may need to purchase further specialist materials.
Materials requirements: Students require their own violin, bow and accessories e.g., shoulder rest, rosin and also a device (phone, tablet or computer) with internet connection.

Entry Requirements

This course suits both students who are just starting to play the violin, who feel they might like a refresher on the basics of fiddle playing before progressing to the Beginners course or who start the Beginners course and find that it’s too advanced and would like more background.

sessions. Students will also be invited to submit questions via email and these questions will be answered.
