Michael's beginner class:

Michael's beginner class is taught using aural methods of learning (learning by ear) and/or through notation. This is provided in various formats e.g. a score or ABC notation. In the long term, students are guided towards perfecting technique, increasing repertoire and putting sets together once a sufficient volume of traditional tunes have been acquired. Michael aims to teach a variety of tunes during the beginner course at an acceptable pace tailored to match ability levels. Michael encourages optional performance(s) within lessons towards the end of or during the course depending on individual preference. He is experienced at guiding students to prepare for traditional music grades, if this is a preferred option.

He is an experienced fiddle tutor teacher who is dedicated to ensure his students achieve their individual goals. He is a qualified primary school teacher with a degree in Music and regularly performs as a traditional artist. Michael has produced his own digital tracks as a recording artist.
