Preparing for a fiddle contest? Learning a new song with your band? Or simply adding to your lineup?

Either way, you’ve come to the right place. My tune tutorials are a perfect way to add beloved fiddle and violin tunes to your repertoire. Each FULL tune tutorial kit includes:

  • Sheet music
  • Video teaching the tune note by note (for non music readers)
  • Play-along videos in slow, medium, and fast tempo
  • Video on changing up the tune (not in all kits)
  • Lesson outline and summary
  • Video on technique
  • Chord charts
  • Audio practice tracks in slow, medium, and fast tempo
  • That’s about 12 components in every FULL kit! Note: “Lite Kits” are half price and contain slow, medium and fast play-alongs, sheet music and audio tracks, but no instruction videos.

     

    Rock Your Next Fiddle Contest

    Have you ever noticed that everyone always plays the same versions of everything at jams and at fiddle contests? Have you ever known someone who got disqualified for playing a tune that did not fit with the rules? I have gone out of my way to make it easy for you to choose a phenomenal contest set, and then I will give you all the help you need to learn it, master it, and totally rock it. Simply look for a Hoedown, a Waltz, and a Free Choice tune. They are clearly labeled to help contestants. Have fun, and good luck!

    Check Out Some Free Offerings

    Don’t take my word for it. Check out my tutorial approach with free kits! These kits are tunes that are important historically and are in danger of being forgotten. I am doing my part to preserve them by passing them along to you. Enjoy them as free samples. These kits are lighter versions of my regular full price kits, but they will give you a small taste of what you get with each kit.

    The free kit, “Granny Does Your Dog Bite” is a full kit, and will give you a clear idea of what most kits include. Be sure to download it!

    Find the tune you want to learn in the list below, get the kit, and BOOM! You’ll have everything you need to learn the song. Whether you read music or not! I teach every tune note by note!

    I stand behind every kit. If you’re not completely satisfied, simply let me know within 30 days of purchase and I will refund your money. (You keep the kit.)
