Fiddlin' Mike is your home for fiddle, mandolin, and guitar. The lessons are designed so that players of all levels can benefit from the 100+ hours of streaming video lessons and an extensive sheet music library. Our instructors use a wide variety of tunes to communicate specific music concepts, like fingering, bowing, pick technique, intonation, tone, improvisation, or theory.  These lessons cater to both beginning and advanced students, and are designed to break down advanced techniques used by masters so that any student can learn and apply them.

Videos like no other!

Fiddlin’ Mike teachers remember what it’s like to be a beginner, trying to learn from a jumble of sheet music, tapes, and videos of our favorite players. We've found a way to make this an easier process. Our unique video format features three screens in one; there is a full angle view of the teacher, closeups so that you can easily see fingerings and pick strokes, and sheet music right on the screen so you don’t have to keep looking down at a printout.

At Fiddlin’ Mike, you get tunes and so much more!

Teachers not only cover the basic melodies of tunes, but teach style, embellishments, and more advanced topics like improvisation and hot solos from great players, like Stuart Duncan, Tony Rice, and Adam Steffey.  Additionally, if there is a particular tune, lick, or solo that you want to learn, one of our teachers can transcribe that material and find a way to work it into a future lesson.
