Reviews from past students...

Brian Wicklund Grey Fox fiddle camp fiddle workshop for kids

"I just have to share with you how much the kids loved your class last summer… you had a real impact on these kids…"

"Brian is a great teacher - really supportive and helpful."

"The class was phenomonal! Brian knew exactly the instruction that we needed."

"I appreciate his gentle, yet fun manner with the kids. My son came away enthused!"

"Your concert was so entertaining and educational. Brian, you are an inspiration!"

“This Easter I came upon Brian Wicklund, the bluegrass fiddle tutor, at a week in the Cotswolds. Above all, this guy is an inspirational teacher, a Suzuki-trained top-level violinist and immense fun. He had a group of 19 students ranging from 3 ex-music college graduates to a 10-year old who’d just played folk for 3 months. He kept everyone laughing, learning and interested.” – Sue Rivett, UK violin teacher
