LESSONS from THE FIDDLE SCHOOL
'Fiddling' has long been an 'aural tradition.' So learning how to play means LISTENING.
Ellie’s method includes Slow / Play Recordings of tunes and the use of 'tune maps,' which easily indicate bowing styles and ornamentation, and are very important to the sound of traditional fiddling.
Sessions are one-on-one (private). The Fiddle School also welcomes those interested in ‘Family Band’ playing.
Ellie Nuño is a self-described 'styles' player, which means she has studied the many and varied styles of fiddling: Old-Tyme, Bluegrass, Country, Celtic (Irish, Scottish, British Isles), Western Swing, New England, Cajun, and American and Jazz standards.
