Welcome to Hopkins Music!
My love for Texas-style fiddling began at the age of 13 when I attended my first Texas fiddle contest. After that day in Crockett, I understood the passion that Texans have for their music and began devoting my life to learning to play as they do and putting myself in a position to one day becoming a Texan myself. One of the high points of my fiddling career was winning the Louis Franklin Championship in Whitewright, Texas, in 2009, and having Louis sign my trophy...that's us in the background. More recent and exciting high points include winning the 2013 Texas State Championship Fiddlers Frolics for the 1st time, 2012 Texas State Championship in Hillsboro for the 3rd time, the 2012 World Championship in Crockett for the 1st time, the 2012 Mid-America Championship in Branson for the 5th time, and serving as a director on the board of the Texas Oldtime Fiddlers Association (TOTFA)
After graduating with a BA in Music Business (NSU) and an AS in Accounting (TCC) in December 2009, I moved from Oklahoma to Texas. I am employed full-time and give fiddle, guitar, tenor guitar, and bass lessons online or from my home in Ft. Worth, Texas; plus I’m in the process of preserving Texas-style fiddle music in written form. If you or your child would like to explore your musical potential, I would enjoy introducing you to Texas and a remarkable tradition...call or email me for private/group lessons, online lessons, sheet music and transcription services, DVDs, CDs, and/or web design services.
