Franco-American fiddler Donna Hébert has deep roots in folk music. Cited for “outstanding artistic achievement” in 2009 by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, Donna is a master of fiddling and fiddle pedagogy as well as a songwriter with originals on two Smithsonian recordings.
Recently retired as fiddle instructor at Smith and Amherst Colleges in western Massachusetts, Donna now teaches a weekly Fiddling Demystified class online with fiddler George Wilson.
Donna’s book “Fiddling Demystified for Strings,” is an in-depth study of styles and techniques that “should be required reading for all string teachers hoping to branch out into fiddling,” said Laura Risk in Strings Magazine. String pioneer Darol Anger says “Donna gets it all right,” in his foreword to the book.Join Talent Forge and Learn from Donna
