Fun Fiddle operates weekly one to one children’s lessons with Sarah Hoy or Gica Loening, depending on availability and based at the tutors homes around or near Portobello. All tutors hold PVGs.

Fun Fiddle currently has a waiting list for children’s lessons, but spaces do come up so please get in touch if you are interested. To find out availability of lessons  please contact us

After many years, we have now put our prices up to £20 per half hour lesson, payable at start of block. If you have difficulties paying full cost, we are open to individual mutually agreed amount.

                                        Playing Together

Playing together is what Fun Fiddle is all about and while we found that one to one lessons work best, especially for younger children, we aim to get young Fun Fiddlers out there playing together and with the adult groups too, this coming year. And what a year! 2023 saw our 20th birthday! Young and auld had chance to play together for various events through the year.

Session Group for Secondary school age young people

Sarah Hoy and her husband, the talented pipes player Fin Moore, are piloting regular weekend sessions for young people to play together. These will be held in Portobello. For more information please contact us

We encourage everyone to play together, and while this has been tricky or IMPOSSIBLE in the last year or so, we hope we can all be back playing together soon.
