JamAlong Music is a collective of musicians around the works that is ever growing, and we come together to help spread our love of playing music through teaching. We welcome inquires from new teachers, just drop us a line and tell us what you can offer! here are some of the regular contributors…


JamAlong fiddle coach Rosalind Parducci handles all or our fiddle related matters, and has a giant collection of fiddle tunes in music and fiddle TAB that she would be delighted to share with you. She also is an adept songwriter and band leader, and fronts the group No Pardon. She welcomes all questions via email, and is full of good ideas. When she is not fiddling away, she runs our “how to read music” program with Brae, and it is the easiest and fastest way for anyone to learn how to read music, period!


Fiddler and alumni of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Avery Risling-Sholl is our regular contributor for all things Celtic, and is the person you’ll be working with if you decide to play more Scottish tuners on yer fiddle. Between him and our banjo guru Brae we keep new videos and lessons coming non-stop. Avery hails from Santa Rosa CA, and specializes in bluegrass, Irish, blues and Old Timey fiddle styles. Email him with all of your questions about leprechaun music 🙂
