Mark O’Connor Violin Method Taught Here!

I just completed a phenomenal weekend seminar of teacher-training in the new Mark O’Connor Violin Method and can now offer this new approach to my students. Books 1 and 2 are suitable for beginners through Level 3 students, and even beyond for those who would like to add improvisation and basic fiddle technique to their musical toolkit. Book 3 contains more advanced music for mid-intermediate students. This method draws on the 400-year-old history and traditions of America’s musical melting pot, with an amazing selection of made-in-America tunes and styles. Fiddle tunes (of course) meet ragtime, mariachi, ballads, blues, jigs and gypsy music. There is truly something for everyone, including some of Mark O’Connor’s own beautiful compositions. Please let me know if you are at all interested in adding these materials to your student’s repertoire, either as a supplement or as a primary study method. More information at
