#beginquote# from http://www.folkofthewood.com/page139.htm Fiddle and Violin are only different in the approach and technique...the tuning, the instrument, the overall methodology is the same...they're essentially two different genres of music. Violin = Classical, Pop Music, etc. Fiddle = Bluegrass, Irish/Celtic, Traditional Appalachian, etc. Since the approach is different, the lessons have to be also...Fiddle is more loosely taught...violin has stricter standards in technique...there are rigid standards in the approach to violin instruction...whereas, fiddle has more leeway for positioning, bowing technique, and ear instruction (as opposed to learning standard notation). #endquote#
