Why our customers love learning with FiddleTutor
I tried Skype lessons and YouTube with not much success but found this site to be really easy to use. The lessons are clear and I can learn without the pressure of someone waiting over me. My confidence has soared.
Looked to have some lessons with a teacher and it was so expensive. This seemed like a bargain and is better than learning with a person because I can keep going back to the lessons.
I can trust in the quality of the video lessons that I get with FiddleTutor. They add structure to my practice and I feel like I can learn any new tune as I'm guided through each step of the way.
