There are 2 Tutor Books available plus Barb's Celtic Fiddle Tune Collection and Session Tune Selection.
There are 5 CDs: One to accompany Book 1 and four to accompany Book 2 - available for $20.00 each.
Book 3, Barb's Celtic Fiddle Tune Collection is in development (individual sheet music is supplied at lessons)
The tutor books form the basis of the lessons and are required for the appropriate level. Book 1 contains 40 and Book 2,
80 pages of instruction and music. They are spiral bound so they lie flat on a music stand. The material has been
selected and arranged in a natural learning sequence based on my experiences as a fiddler and working with students.
