Subject: (Aust) Need a fiddle teacher
From: Bugsy
Date: 25 Nov 08 - 11:23 PM

My Granddaughter wants to learn to play the fiddle. The family are moving to Koonamoo, Country Victoria, in the next couple of weeks and she would like to commence lessons in the new year. Do any Aussie 'Catters know of anyone living in this area that could either give her lessons or alternatively give her some pointers. She had a couple of lessons in her old school but the new one doesn't have any fiddle teachers.

Your help would be very much appreciated.

Cheers


Bugsy

Hello Bugsy. Where exactly is Koonamoo? I could look it up but might be easier to ask you. I thought I knew Victoria fairly well.
Cheers, Joy

It's on the Goulburn Valley Highway, about 5kms South of Tocumwal, Whicj is located 257kms from Melbourne on the New South Wales border.(On the NSW side of the border the road becomes the Newell Highway,)

Hope this helps

according to Google maps Koonoomoo is a tiny little speck on the map in the middle on nowhere**, & it might be worth posting a message on Folk Alliance's Australia wide list to cast the net wider.

If no-one here can help & you want me to post your request, PM me with your contact details.

We live in a lttle-speck-on-the-map town too but it's not near Koonoomoo. Sandra is probably your best bet, Bugsy but I'll ask our fiddler friend -- in Melbourne.
Good luck, Joy

No luck with my fiddler friend, Bugsy. Tried to come up with other friends of mine too. I've not met anyone on the Bluegrass and Old Timey scene from that area either.
The musical hot-spots in Victoria seem to be in Central Victoria, the East of the state and Melbourne. Corryong for box players. We have a few fiddlers in the Western District. Maybe Sandra might find someone over the border. Good luck.
Cheers, Joy

If you really want 'fiddle training', then you might make do with basic 'violin lessons' from a regular classical teacher - which will teach the basics of handing the instrument - once that is learned - where the notes are, holding the bow, stance, etc, then one can move on to 'fiddling around', if you pardon my expression...

Dammit - fooled again.

I was going to suggest a fairly local guy - Aust is a village 5 miles away!!!

Never mind Newport Boy, the thought was there anyway.

Thanks Sandra, I will wait patiently for any news.

Yes Foolestroupe, I agree. I would be happy to hear from ANY violin tutors in that area.

Well, no luck so far on the teacher front, so I sent her a "Learn From Scratch" DVD for Christmas. Hopefully that will give her a bit guidance.

Thanks everyone for your help and I hope you all have a Happy New Year.



Cheers
