Hey,I was at your concert in Denver last night and you signed my first violin at the meet and greet. Meeting you was the coolest thing i have ever done. I had a few more questions for you. What kind of violin do you play and who makes it? What method did you learn to play the violin on? Thank you please e-mail me!

Hi Rylan,

It was lovely to meet you at Meet and greet!

To answer your questions....

I play a Matthias Alban violin made in the second last year of his life.
It is 302 years old and i love the sound it makes.
Here's a link about Matthias and his violins....

The method I learned for classical was the conventional, coupled with having the ear skills from my traditional Irish music learned on the same instrument. I developed different bow holds myself for different styles. I liked a book that I read growing up too by Kato Havas which was a great help for relaxation & anyone with stage fright. Here's a link to the brilliant Kato Havas.

I hope this is helpful and keep up the playing!

Máiréad.
