  • (1888PressRelease) February 11, 2015 - Willis has performed with some of the best Grand Old Opry stars including; Dolly Parton, Craig Morgan, Johnny Russell, Jack Greene, George Hamilton IV, Jeanny Seally, Jean Shepard, and Margo Smith, to name but a few.

    Drawing on his years of experience as a professional fiddler, Willis has published his new instructional website fiddlevideo dot com, with the same type of perfection that is evident in his playing. The website features two cameras in each lesson; one with close up detailed left hand instruction and the other with easy to follow playing instructions that make it fun and simple for fiddlers of all abilities to learn."

    Each lesson module is produced using the same methodology for a consistent presentation and includes the following material: A Performance Video, A Basic Melody Tutorial, An Advanced Melody Tutorial, MP3 download of the audio performance, Sheet Music for the Basic Melody and Guitar Backup Track to practice with.

    Recently Willis was granted license to teach several of Jay Unger's songs, i.e Ashoken Farewell, Lovers Waltz and a new recent composition the Blue River Waltz. Unger has received accolades world wide with his award winning song "Ashoken Farewell" that was featured in the PBS TV Civil War documentary by Ken Burns.

    Willis is the main instructor on the site teaching a variety of fiddle styles from faster paced breakdowns to slow beautiful waltzes. Willis has also sized up todays fiddle scene very accurately by offering lessons from one of the top Celtic players of traditional and contemporary Scottish music, Hanneke Cassel.

    Hanneke is the 1997 U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion. She holds a Bachelors of Music in Violin Performance from Berklee College of Music and has performed and taught across North America, Europe, New Zealand, Australia, and China. Her playing has received rave reviews: "Exuberant and rhythmic, somehow both wild and innocent, delivered with captivating melodic clarity and an irresistible playfulness" - The Boston Globe. Such charismatic fiddling has brought the native Oregonian many honors and awards.

    Fiddlers are invited to subscribe by the month or by the year for 24/7 unlimited access during their subscription period. For a limited time there is free 3 day trial to explore the site and songs.
