Sam Sweeney is not only a fantastic player and a wonderful teacher, but also an inspiration.”
I really love the way Sam helps me think about my playing and folk music in new ways. He’s so enthusiastic and inspiring and I leave every lesson excited about improving and with a really clear idea of what to work on next.”
As a Scottish fiddle teacher, I was really interested to find out more about the English folk style of playing. My lesson with Sam was brilliant. His way of explaining complicated technique was clear, concise and made complete sense without baffling me. He was extremely patient and encouraging and gave me lots of tips and technique exercises to work on. I would highly recommend having lessons with Sam. I felt privileged to be able to tap into his knowledge and would love to have another lesson sometime soon. Thanks Sam!!!”
I went to Sam for lessons because I liked his playing the best of anyone. And I still do!”
The workshop was brilliant, really accessible and gave me lots of ideas to improve my technique. I'd love to come to another workshop in future.”
The workshop was very enjoyable - there were some very useful tips on how to get that folky feel into your playing and some excellent tunes as well.”
What an awesome day… I can't wait for the next one!”
