Lilting Fiddle


A blog of online resources and experiences in learning to play violin.


This blog follows the musical journey of an adult learning to play fiddle - with a specific interest in Irish/Celtic music.

You'll find my fiddle practice log here, as well as a list of online resources and reviews of tools associated with what I'm learning. I hope something I've discovered can be helpful to you!
