About Bradon S.

Want to.... Learn to play the fiddle? I am an experienced teacher of the fiddle, in the Irish and Scottish traditional styles. I was trained as a classical violinist, but now specialise in teaching traditional fiddle. I have 700+ hours of teaching experience from complete beginners to advanced players, both online and in person one-to-one lessons. I have exceptional student feedback and ratings, and pride myself on the quality of my tuition. I work around the student's needs, but am often particularly asked to help develop a player's rhythm, phrasing, traditional ornamentation and 'lilt', as well as expanding repetoire in the student's chosen tradition. I like to build a relaxed and supportive approach to learning, and to build student's confidence through positive feedback.

I have studied the traditions and techniques of traditional fiddle playing, learning from some of the finest fiddle players around today, and constantly advancing my own playing. I am an experienced performer in ceilidh bands, and a well-known player in the Irish session scene in London, Bristol and Bath.

I have spent a considerable amount of time and effort over the last few fews years honing my online teachings until I believe I give the best possible student experience, using a multi-camera setup that allows me to show you exactly what it is we are trying to learn from the best possible angle. I really believe my online setup now rivals in-person teaching for the quality of the learning experience.

I am currently teaching 26 regular students, many of them who have been with me for 2 or 3 years. Due to changing personal circumstances from Jan 2022 I will have availability to take on a small number of new regular students.

I am an experienced and trained teacher. As well as teaching the fiddle, I have taught a variety of subjects at every level from secondary school (age 11 and up), to Masters level. I hold a PhD from the University of Cambridge and have taught at the Universities of Bath, Bristol, Edinburgh and Cambridge. I hold an internationally recognised Fellowship from the Higher Education Academy in recognition of my teaching experience.

Bradon’s knowledge and enthusiasm for the fiddle really comes across in his lessons. Lessons are well prepared and the music is challenging but accessible to my level. He is an excellent teacher; his explanations are clear and he is supportive when pointing out mistakes or suggesting improvements. His teaching style is friendly and approachable. I look forward to my lessons and highly recommended Bradon as a tutor.
