We've been spending a bit of time every day sending out Kickstarter rewards, so if you pledged, keep an eye on your email or mail box soon for your reward. We hope you enjoy!

In just a few hours we'll be officially releasing the album for Laurel's hometown fans on the California Central Coast, but if we don't see you there, we'll surely see you soon!

Please email me at if you have a violin, viola, fiddle, music biz, or practice related question you’d like answered in the blog or on a podcast, have a story or insight to share, or if you’d like to inquire about violin, viola, or fiddle lessons with me, in-person or online via Skype, FaceTime, or Zoom.

The Violin Geek Blog is a free resource and always will be. We also don't sell advertising, meaning that everything you read has been a labor of love. If you'd like to support my efforts and help ensure they continue, please consider making a donation. Thanks for your support!
