Workshops & Lessons

Paul's approach to teaching and giving workshops is developed from his own experience of learning the fiddle, coupled with his knowledge of conducting private lessons and workshops at the annual Willie Clancy Summer School in Milltown Malbay, County Clare and his years of teaching.

Emphasis is placed (as far as possible) on all aspects of traditional Irish fiddle-playing: posture, technique, timing, tone, tuning,ornamentation and individual style.

Paul specialises in basic technique as he finds that it is often not taught to a sufficient level. E.g. holding the fiddle - holding/carrying the bow - stance - how to sit or stand - the bow-stroke etc.

He uses written musical notation and ABC notation plus integration of learning by ear.
