Woodbury Strings (aka Green Star Fiddle Lessons) is now offering a combination of in person and online video lessons and have begun a youtube channel to support our groups and lessons. For an upcoming list of events please see this page on our new website. We are available for regular or one time lessons for local and distant students!  Payments are made via PayPal, Venmo, or Snail Mail. We offer a discounted rate to first time students for the first two or three lessons ($50 gives you two 1/2 hour lessons  or $75 gives you two one hour lessons).  We also  plan to expand our Youtube video presence during the winter months which will be a way to get some support for free.  This will be focused on fun new tunes to learn easily and slowly, supported by pdf sheet music which will be posted on this page for now.  We provide some technical tips online for rank beginners to help get you started and to deal with any technical issues that might come up.  Music making can be a very soothing activity during these challenging times.  We want to help make your home music making is as gratifying as possible for you and your whole family!

Woodbury Strings is a family business that began in Woodbury, Vermont in 1990, moved to Montpelier from 2001 - 2013, and is now located in Winooski, Vermont. We offer a complete program for fiddlers and fretted instrument players of all ages starting as young as age three to adults in their retirement years. In addition to private lessons, we lead various groups and events in the community, host student recitals, support family music making, and help our youth and adult students in finding groups or camps to participate in. We are highly skilled and experienced teachers who tailor our instruction to the unique and varied needs of our students. In particular, we have developed an exceptional program for beginning level students of all ages. We are a kind, caring, patient, and creative husband and wife team that creates a warm family atmosphere that is ideal for students of all ages to be introduced to music. Many of our families have thanked us for being their child's "first teacher" because we are well known for bringing the love of music making to our students. Let us be yours, or your child's, first teacher! Contact us for more information and enjoy browsing our website. Thanks for visiting!
