  • (1888PressRelease) January 11, 2014 - Oregon Oldtime Fiddlers are a generous group of musicians willing to share and pass on their knowledge of Oldtime fiddling. Many of these fiddlers are also teachers with students ranging in age from beginners at five years old to super seniors in their 90's.

    Oregon has a great resource in the ranks of fiddlers state wide that step up to mentor fiddlers of all ages and Central Oregon has one of them here in Bend.

    Roland White is a two time Oregon State Senior Fiddling Champion and he has been awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the Oregon Oldtime Fiddlers Association for his dedicated service and his commitment to fiddle teaching.

    White says. "I share this award with fifteen other excellent teachers in the state that have received this award for teaching and mentoring fiddlers of all ages in their geographical areas."

    White is accepting students for lessons in his home studio by appointment. White explains, " I have room for new students from 7 years old to senior citizens and I teach from beginning to advanced skill levels. Since I love different fiddling styles I can teach Oldtime, Celtic and other ethnic fiddle styles."

    White also hosts a website for fiddlers and music lovers with information on fiddling events, music festivals and fiddle contests. He also performs fiddle for wedding music including ceremonies, receptions, anniversary parties and community events.

    White concludes, " I enjoy being a mentor and teacher for students especially seeing the joy on their faces when they conquer another tune or technique."

    As one happy parent says, "My 12 year old daughter has enjoyed fiddling with Roland for a year.  She now has a cheerful library of fiddling tunes in her head and has fine tuned her ear tremendously. Lessons are a delight due to Roland's unfailing patience and dedication to his craft.  We especially appreciate Roland's thoughtful preparation for each lesson and the CD's he prepares to help with practice. Thanks for making fiddling fun, Roland."
