We had a very enjoyable and successful Virtual Summer School in August and were delighted by the enthusiasm and positive attitude of all of the participants. We are looking forward to another block of NEFS Online, with tuition through video tutorials teaching tunes and techniques, worksheets and audio files, plus a weekly Fiddle Practice live play-along on Zoom. New for this block is an optional Live Teaching call, building a core repertoire or tunes suitable for all Level 2 and 3 players. For more information please see the NEFS website and you can book online now.

The North East Fiddle School was set up in January 2018 to provide regular, high-quality fiddle classes in the North East of England. Working with extremely talented tutors, NEFS strives to provide the very highest quality of fiddle tuition – a safe and nurturing learning environment encourages participants to improve both as fiddle players and musicians, increasing their stylistic awareness and appreciation of a strong fiddle tradition.
Directed by Stewart Hardy & Ali Say, NEFS currently provides weekly classes on a Wednesday evening in Gosforth, Newcastle with tutoring from Stewart and Melissa Whitehead. Two ability levels are catered for, with classes focusing on Fiddle Technique and Style & Repertoire, as well as an Absolute Beginners class with Ali. Full details of classes can be found on the North East Fiddle School website.
