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.)
