Welcome to mrfiddle.com!
My name is Don Hicks. I created mrfiddle.com over ten years ago. During that time, people of all ages,
all over the world, have used my violin/fiddle files as a fun way to supplement violin studies. I'm very pleased
to announce that I am now able to offer online violin lessons.
To take advantage, you will need to have access to a computer and a Skype account. The cost of lessons
is $25 per half hour lesson, payable with any major credit card. Please send me an Email at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information and/or to request a particular time slot.
I look forward to meeting with

I am glad that you've found my page for violin/fiddle students of all ages. Scroll down on the contents column to the left, and you will find QuickTime movies on how to improvise, Major scales in all keys with finger/note animations, tuning notes with tuning instructions, my original pieces for violin, MIDI files (Musical Instrument Digital Interface), original songs, and much more!
All selections have "Popup MIDI Files". This means that when you "Click" on the MIDI links, your Internet browser will open and play the songs through your computer's sound card. They play on WebTV as well! The QuickTime movies require the most recent version of QuickTime available at http://www.apple.com You may need to update your Macintosh or Windows Operating System to meet the new QuickTime standards... Sorry. That's just the way it is...
Anyway, let's get started! You can tune up, develop a good bow hold and violin posture, work on a scale, play a piece, and even learn to improvise! But, remember! Take little steps and try to make them perfect. Don't try to take on too many new skills at one time.
