Described as “one of the greatest improvising violinists in America today” by virtuoso mandolinist/composer Mike Marshall, Alex Hargreaves is a fiddler who draws inspiration from a wide variety of genres and traditions. He is currently touring full-time with Grammy award-winning guitarist and singer Billy Strings.


Based in Brooklyn, NY, Alex has toured with Jerry Douglas, David Grisman, Béla Fleck, Danilo Perez, and Sarah Jarosz, and has performed with many others including Punch Brothers, Sierra Hull, Steve Martin, and Kacey Musgraves—appearing on her Saturday Night Live debut. He was a member of the Grammy award-winning Turtle Island Quartet from 2016–2019, appearing on their 2018 release, Bird’s Eye View, and can often be heard playing in the house band on the public radio variety show, Live From Here with Chris Thile.


At age 17, Alex, along with bassist Paul Kowert (Punch Brothers), teamed with Mike Marshall to form The Big Trio, performing together extensively following the release of their self-titled album in 2009. From 2007–2014, he toured with Sarah Jarosz, appearing on her three critically acclaimed albums, Song Up In Her Head, Follow Me Down, and Build Me Up From Bones, as well as being featured on her Grammy-nominated instrumental, Mansinneedof. Alex released his debut album Prelude in 2010, featuring Mike Marshall, Grant Gordy, and Paul Kowert, along with special guests Béla Fleck and Noam Pikelny. About Alex’s playing on the album, David Grisman says “[Alex] plays with wit, authority, and soulfulness belying his years. In my opinion, he's destined to be one of the fiddle giants of the 21st century.”


Alex was awarded the Jimmy Lyons full tuition scholarship to the Berklee College of Music at the 2010 Monterey Jazz Festival. While studying at Berklee, Alex completed the prestigious Global Jazz Institute, providing him with the opportunity to work one-on-one with artistic director Danilo Perez (Wayne Shorter Quartet), along with countless other jazz legends. During this time, Alex also toured with Perez and recorded on his album, Panama 500.


Currently on faculty at The New School, Alex is an experienced music educator, having taught at a variety of music camps and workshops including the Mark O’Connor Fiddle Camp, Swannanoa Gathering, Augusta Heritage, Christian Howes’ Creative Strings Workshop, and the Mike Block String Camp. He also teaches privately in Brooklyn and will soon be teaching online here at ArtistWorks.


With a strong emphasis on ear training, Alex helps his students find their own way of learning and staying inspired, while still respecting the traditions and contributions of those who set the groundwork for the music we play today.


Through his online fiddle lessons at ArtistWorks, you’ll learn the ins and outs of Alex’s distinct approach to the instrument and the intricate methods that define his one-of-a-kind sound and style. Alex has drawn from his extensive knowledge as both a professional fiddler and seasoned educator to create a comprehensive course of fiddle lessons online designed to teach players of all levels how to play.


So, whether you're starting from scratch or you’re an experienced player looking to break new ground, learn with Alex and get an intimate look into his unique approach and style. Grow as a fiddle player while simultaneously furthering yourself as a musician, and get direct guidance from Alex at every step of your musical journey.
