This past March, when schools around the world shut down, FiddleQuest began the Homebound Fiddle Sessions.

What started as a temporary solution to dealing with the isolation and the loss of school routine quickly turned into a regular gathering of students from 6 - 80 years old, from Oregon to Poland. These on-line fiddle session for students and teachers are weekdays 11-11:30 am PDT. ​

The Learning Groups

Happy Mistakes Club This is a group for students who are in the beginning and early-intermediate stages of learning. Typically Level 5 and below.

Fast   This group is for fiddlers that are able to learn more complex tunes quickly. Level 6 and above fiddlers -- approximately.

You can choose any group! If you want to live in the fast lane and you are a slower player, no problem. Jump in the fast group. Just expect to get only some of the song. 


Participants will need to register for the class. Once you register, you will receive a link and instruction on joining the zoom meeting.


Homebound Fiddle Sessions is free to all!
