Hello and Welcome.




More and more fiddlers are taking lessons online via Skype and Facetime these days. A student can take lessons from a teacher who lives very far away as long as the student has access to the internet and a reasonably good connection. Most computers come with a camera but if not, a clip-on camera can be purchased fairly inexpensively.

How does this work?

  • Sign up for a free Skype account at
  • My Skype name is Babs Lamb.

How much do online lessons cost?

  • $60 an hour – minimum two lessons per month
  • $30 a half hour – minimum four lessons per month,

How do I pay?

Using PayPal is very easy. My PayPal account is Go to and follow the prompts for sending money. I also accept checks.

The best thing to do is contact me at with questions. We will get your Skype connection set up and give it a whirl before starting with real lessons.


If you are coming to Nashville and wish to schedule a private lesson as a one time or very occasional event, I charge $100 for a 90 minute session.


I have been teaching people how to play the fiddle since I was 14 years old. I give private lessons, group lessons in private workshop settings and have taught at many of the premier music camps in the world.

I have taught various fiddling styles at these camps:

  • Mark O’Connor Fiddle Camp – Tennessee
  • Steve Kaufman Kamp – Tennessee
  • NashCamp – Tennessee
  • Swannanoah at Warren Wilson College, North Carolina
  • Montana Oldtime Fiddle Camp – Montana
  • Augusta Heritage Camp – Elkins, North Carolina
  • American River Tunes – California
  • Wintergrass – Washington (workshop)
  • Sore Fingers – England
  • Northern Bluegrass Circle Music Society Camp – Edmonton, Canada
  • SPGMA – Nashville, Tennessee (workshop)

Do you have to know how to play the violin before you can learn how to fiddle?

Oh, golly, no! I have taught people how to play who are brand new to the instrument. Mark O’Connor was one such student way back when.

I teach beginners just starting out all the way to pros who need some style coaching.
