American Fiddle Method

Expert fiddle player and teacher Brian Wicklund created the American Fiddle Method to do for fiddling what the Suzuki Violin Method has done for violin playing.  Originally trained in Suzuki, Brian teaches the same fundamental skills as classical violin but with fun, authentic fiddle tunes instead of boring exercises.
