Faculty / Tim Ball


Fiddle, Suzuki fiddle, Suzuki violin

Tim Ball grew up playing both classical violin and fiddle music, and
holds a Bachelor's degree in Violin Performance from Ithaca College,
where he studied with Susan Waterbury. While there, Tim dove headfirst
into the contra dance and Irish music scenes, and is fortunate to have
been mentored by David Kaynor, Ed McGowan, and many others. He has
also studied Suzuki teaching with Carrie Reuning-Hummel. Tim has
performed at numerous contra dances and festivals throughout the
Northeast with his band Tunescape, and plays around central New York
with the contra dance band Tempest, the Irish band Traonach, and many
others. Passionate about introducing authentic fiddle music to
classical musicians, Tim has taught at camps including the Ithaca
Suzuki Institute and the Kanack School's fiddle camp. Tim's schedule
and recordings are available at his website, http://timballviolin.com.
