Hi.. thought Id share that the "Good Tune" guys on youtube have a patreon page that you may find useful.   Its both fiddle and guitar with different levels up to 13.50/month.  At that level you get all the "nerdy" talk about each of their posts.   Things like equipment used such as mic types, placement, different takes, story behind tunes...


check them out here

I used to visit Cellopedia on Patreon. He does the Suzuki Books, and, luckily, a lot of the non-Suzuki songs we did in lessons. He does a great job with cello lessons. SkillShare has a lot, also.

Thanks Mouse.  Cello is something ive always wanted to try so having a resource to look at like those would be helpful.

Here is Martin Hayes' patreon.  Super content.  Even if only for a few months I think is something even non Irish fiddle types could enjoy and get something out of. He has alot of content on individual tunes and many on specific subjects that give his approach to learning tunes, history, and approach to irish fiddling. I havent taken part in any of the group or one on one lessons he has, but for the upper tier subscribers he has monthly group lessons and a one on one zoom lesson.  sometime down the road I would like to check out the group zoom class.

LOVED the Patreon Martin Hayes lessons I spent time with - were extremely helpful/insightful! 

Did you know that Sam Sweeney has fiddle workshops & tutorials on Patreon? 

There are also one-on-one lessons with Fergal Scahill on Patreon!

Viola lessons are scarce on Patreon, but Amber Reed offers several options to consider.


I thought Mia Marine used to have lessons on patreon, but I see she has her Mia's Groovy Fiddle Academy set up for PayPal, or credit card payments - 1 month, 6 or 12 months... my next agenda (when I have time). 

Don't forget the Fiddlershop Academy has a similar set up with PayPal.

Another good resource in the Irish music style is this.   He has an online group and leads a slow session.   The web link will take you to where you can subscribe to an email list and from that ahe will send out info on day and time.   Thinking its on Saturdays now but not sure.

a user on thesession made another post where he provides a link to recordings of previous ones and at the time it was free..but asks for donations.   these are good quality recordings to practice sets to

heres the John Whelan link
