Online Instrumental Tuition

Hello, Nick here.

I am now teaching on Skype, FaceTime and Zoom from my home studio.

I offer individual and group instrumental tuition on fiddle (Celtic and North American styles mostly), guitar, mandolin, mandocello, 5 string banjo, lap dulcimer, saw, and live looping in performance. Please contact me directly from here if you'd like to know more.

Here's some of the 'serious' stuff:
