Have you ever wanted to learn the fiddle? Don't let the fact that you're an adult hold you back. We've taught hundreds of people to play from the very beginning, getting them to the point where they could perform confidently (if they wanted to!) There's no need to read music nor memorize it. You don't even have to know how to play! We take the time to practice the tunes with you as you learn them.

Drunken Fiddles is a group class for adults who would like to learn how to play the fiddle/violin. During the 6 week class participants will learn a new fiddle tune each week in a relaxed group environment. We drink wine, we laugh, we have fun and, most importantly, we fiddle! Each class is taught by violinist/fiddler Laurel Parks (of The Wires String duo) whose background includes classical training, fiddling, composing and improvisation.Learn More
"I love Laurel Parks! She changed my life! I had always dreamed of playing music in a band, and performing in front of large crowds, but my extreme stage fright held me back from this dream. Laurel provided me with the perfect tools and methods to overcome this. I was shocked at how quickly my performance anxiety melted away with her help. I highly recommend Laurel Parks to cure your performance anxiety. She is magical and will transform you. I am so very thankful that I am now living my dream as a full-time performing musician! "
