Material posted below should give you an idea of what we will cover in group classes, performances, and recitals. Most material I teach is covered in the Suzuki Violin School books, American Fiddle Method books, or Kerstin Wartberg's Step By Step books. Additional fiddle tunes are my own arrangements that I have transcribed for instructional purposes.
