About Silver Apple School of Scottish Fiddle 

Led by three-time U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion and judge Colyn Fischer  classes explore this ancient tradition from the Golden Age of Scots fiddle in the 18th century to today.

Classes include group lessons for musicians of varied levels, private and semi-private lessons, coaching in composing and arranging, accompaniment styles, small-group ensembles, Scots singing, and more.

Silver Apple strives to preserve and advance Scottish fiddling through immersive learning experiences with experts in the tradition. From workshops to camps, private lessons to group sessions, from 18th century collections to tunes written yesterday. Students will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in Scottish fiddling.

We want fiddlers to walk away from a Silver Apple session with a deeper understanding of this incredible folk art and have the tools to make it for themselves.
