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. We still hold Homebound Fiddle Sessions every Saturday!
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.
Shanon is a violin, viola, and piano teacher with a BM in Violin Performance from Cal State Northridge, and has taught for 15+ years.
Happy Mistakes Club
A group for students who are in the beginning and early-intermediate stages of learning.
Typically Level 5 and below
A group for fiddlers who are able to learn more complex tunes quickly.
Typically Level 6 and above
You can choose any group you want! If you're a slower player who wants to live life in the fast lane, no problem. Just remember that you'll probably only get some of the song.

Every Saturday we have a 1-hour long session at 8 AM Pacific Time (11 AM Eastern Time; 5 PM Poland time.)
These sessions will be recorded and made available immediately after the session is over, so students will have access to the lesson even if they have a scheduling conflict that week.
