I tailor individual lessons to the specific interests and skills of my students. I believe that anyone of any age can learn as long as they have persistentance and inspiration. I like to give a rounded approach in order to build up skills in supporting areas for example ear training, reading music, finding a comfortable hold and providing group playing experience with other musicians if wanted.
I have taught Irish Fiddle and violin since 2005 both at music schools and privately in the UK and Ireland. Ideally, I like to bring my individual students together to enjoy the social aspects of music making, and learn by ear in person. I have organised some masterclasses given by other visiting expert fiddle players.

I had lessons from Joanne in early 2020, before the first Coronavirus shutdown. She is a classically trained violinist with great technique, but I went to her for specific training in traditional music style. I was extremely satisfied with the outcome, a new reel set which I now play regularly. Her knowledge of this style, and style tips she gave me, helped enormously. Above all, her patience, her willingness to spend time analysing and correcting my mistakes and weaknesses, contributed greatly to my enjoyment of lessons with her and improvement of my violin technique.
I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a great violin teacher.
Joanne is one of the most compassionate and talented fiddle players and educators I have had the pleasure of working with, and I can honestly say that I would recommend her completely. She understands the needs of each learner as an individual and finds empowering ways to overcome challenges. It’s always been an honour to work with her and I look forward to more future collaborations. She’s a truly inspiring teacher and a totally soulful musician.
