 “I tried to learn violin by myself last year but I really needed a system that works… and Gillian’s definitely works!” – Jeffray Fiset

“After finding by chance on YouTube a video of the magical playing of Gillian Boucher I then subscribed to  her Learn Celtic Fiddle program online and it has been a great method – progress has been made! Gillian’s method works and I can recommend it to anyone who wants to learn Celtic fiddle.  After having picked up the violin after leaving it in its case for 35 years I am now performing live in gigs with my fiddle – and apart from lots of practice it is also thanks to Gillian!” – Jenny Groome, Italy

“I really like the way the lessons start out nice and easy, it allowed me to listen carefully to the notes, make sure they were clean and crisp and in tune.  I know there are a million ways to learn the violin or fiddle on the internet, but what I really appreciate about the Celtic Fiddle program is that the tunes were Scottish (Celtic) in origin and were easy to learn.” – Craig Caldwell, Canada
