Thanks @Mark and @Fiddlerman I think she will be a good match for my interests, and it is going to be a long trip for the lessons. I could have hooked up with a teacher locally, but I really wanted someone who teaches Old Time like the Old Timers taught it.

This is an old thread, but just for additional information. I had my first FaceTime lesson a few days ago. I did a post about it and put it in the “Learning” topic area. It was a cello lesson, but should be the same as for violin or viola. Here is a link with my impressions:

Learning Cello Probably Applies to Violin and Viola With FaceTime

One thing right now, with concerts being put on hold, I've seen several amazing touring musicians offering online lessons while they are sheltering at home. If I didn't already have a teacher, I'd take advantage of that.

There's even a website called MaestroMatch that was created to match people to online music teachers while everything is shut down. It includes a large variety of instruments and styles. Some of the people listed are quite well known as performers.

I haven't taken any lessons yet, but I plan to when my shoulder recovers enough from injury to practice regularly.
