Fiddle lessons

Harry gives fiddle lessons, with emphasis on technical aspects of the instrument, reading music, and learning tunes by ear.  While most of the music played comes from the fiddle repertoire, we play music from other styles including classical. I have also taught mandolin and tenor saxophone.

I have been played music for many years in different styles including rock, jazz, country, folk, and world music. I’m a strong believer in the universality of music, with the differences between the genres superficial.

I have played in various bands over the years including The Wingnuts, John’s Garage, The Ecotones, Malahat String Band, Lasqueti Island All-Stars, Lenny Road Boys, Bijoux de Bayou, Gang of Four, Bluegrass Punks, Wild Rose, Shady Grove Dance Band, and Rogue Wave.

In addition to fiddle, I play mandolin, tenor saxophone, accordion, and pedal steel guitar.

Joan loves to play the piano.
