Valley Youth Fiddlers is an organization that your child can grow with. We have several levels from beginner through to advanced. That said new members are expected to have a minimum of 1 year of lessons under their belt and be at least 5 years old. Members are expected to take lessons throughout their time in VYF. We have workshops where we learn new tunes and practices where we fine tune them but our group is not intended to be and can't be a replacement for regular one on one instruction. The VYF season starts each year in September. We suggest anyone who would like to be a member to reach out to us before September and start with us at the beginning of the year.

If you would like to become a member of VYF then please email us.
