      Mr. Willis
      I s very much enjoy your music and greatly admire you as a teacher
      I just joined your group and play the diatonic harmonica
      I play it all by ear and your patience is very helpful as well as all the supporting features of your website
      your website should be an award wining model . I teach painting, I only wish I could have a website constructed on this model
      I wonder if you would teach us this tune “Yellow Stocking”
      it is also a dance tune in the Contra Dance community

      I am discovering a lot of new songs, so inspiring

      thank you

      Hi, Brigitte, and thanks for subscribing! Happy to hear you’re enjoying membership!!

      I took a look at that tune, and it seems to be a Celtic standard originally…I’ll pitch it to Kevin Burke and Hanneke Cassel…they may choose to record it! All the best!

      thank you so much for your consideration

      but honestly and between us , and not to offend anyone, just a personal preference , I like YOUR teaching much better

      not only are you spending enough time, not talking too much about stuff around the piece, but actually destructuring patiently and you give music a soul

      that is a inner talent
      I am not even watching your fingers, but you teach so well I can catch it

      I am studying your waltz at the moment

      plenty to do there

      but I also Love Celtic music and you are the best teacher by far

      YOU are the reason I subscribed to the website

      what about having several teachers doing different interpretations?

      that would be fun when you run out of tunes ahah!

      what about Reel St. Antoine?

      I just learned it and it is played so fast,

      it is a bit of a mechanical tune to start with

      I have to slow it down

      an experienced musician like you can give feeling this this tune that seems to be treated as a competition – speed competition – all over the internet
      thank you so much for all you do for the advancement of fiddle tunes and now yu have a non fiddle student !
