Fiddle students practicing on Zoom

From Solution to Program

In March 2020, when schools around the world shut down, FiddleQuest began the Homebound Fiddle Sessions.

Homebound Fiddle Sessions started as a temporary solution to the isolation and loss of school routine which made practicing between violin lessons difficult. However, the program quickly turned into a regular gathering of students from 6 - 80 years old, from Oregon to Poland. These online fiddle sessions for students and teachers are held weekdays 11-11:30 AM PDT. ​

Laurel is a music educator, professional musician, and music librarian in Los Angeles, CA. She has an MM in Violin Performance and a Clear California teaching credential from Cal State LA and has taught for 20 years.
